    Game to test out my new hardware?

    I know its not really a technical issue, but I've just built myself a new box, with an Nvidia 8800GTS gpu and 4gb of ram. Im dying to test it out with something, but what?

    I downloaded urban terror as I used to enjoy playing that, but the graphics don't get that good to be honest. What will reap the benefits of the new hardware?

    Suggestions welcome for windows games too, although I would prefer free (beer and speech).

    Thanks

    Umm ut3 demo has been released for linux? I can't find it. Could you give us a link? I'm shocked i hadn't heard about it yet.

    Edit: I've scoured the net, I'm pretty sure there still isn't a linux client for ut3 yet. shame on you, lol got me all excited.

    Ahh, yeah, sorry, I thought that they've already developed it for linux, but it still needs some time. In that way the best choice is ET:QW I think.

    Hahaha, ut3 is a great game, I was playing it on my brother's computer and I'm shocked that it was sold that little.
