What are your system specs, and what games do you run on it? How well do they run? Linux, Windows, or Mac? If linux, do you use cedega?

I have an older micron PC. It has 192 MB SDRAM, 701 Mhz Celeron, 20 GB HDD, Integrated Intel graphics. I play UT: GOTY in windows at 640*480 and it runs well. I used to run it in cedega in linux but it was too slow.

I'll just borrow from another thread I posted in:

AMD Athlon 64 3000 (socket 939, Venice core)
MSI RS480M2-IL motherboard (Radeon Xpress 200 GPU/chipset, 10/100 ethernet, 6 channel audio, SATA, firewire)
1GB (2x 512) Kingston DDR-400 RAM
2x Western Digital 160GB SATA hard drives
LG 52x CD-RW
LG 16x dual layer DVD-RW
Creative Soundblaster Live
Enermax 535W powersupply

Runs every game I've thrown at it (not neccesarily well). I play Battlefield 2 alot... I'm going to put a Geforce 7800GT in after Christmas.

EDIT: I should update this...now its going to be a Geforce 7800GTX :D

System specs:
CPU: Pentium III 600Mhz
GPU: 32MB GeForce2 MX 200
HD : 20 GB 7200RPM, 10GB 5400RPM, IDE

I play mostly older games, and have yet to try wine or cedega. I keep a slimmed-down Windows 98 for playing games. Some games that I play, with no problems:

Diablo 2 LOD - runs just fine in 800 x 600, with direct3d or opengl

Half-Life 1 w/ 2 expansions - runs well in opengl 1024 x 768. Even decent higher than that. I was really impressed by the engine they use.

Command & Conquer - all of them up to (including) Yuri's revenge. Runs great. Tried a demo of Generals, and needed to drop the quality quite a bit, but it ran ok.

Starcraft 1
Warcraft 2
Icewind Dale Collection
Dungeon Siege 1
Soldier of Fortune 1

CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2000+ [should be getting a 3000+ soon]
GPU: 256MB GeForce FX 5950 Ultra [is actually a friends who upgraded to a 660GT, and hence had no use for this card]
MB : ASUS A7N8X Deluxe
RAM: 1024MB DDR333 RAM

I can play Doom3 and Resurrection of Evil at 800x600 on High (without anti-aliasing). UT2004 and Neverwinter Nights run great on High at 1024x768. I also play Warcraft III with Cedega which runs absolutely perfectly, except for a few small font issue. I have some oldish games installed as well, such as Quake II, Quake III and RtCW.

Doom3 runs at a much more consistent FPS in Linux, compared to Windows. Though in Windows, when I run UT2004 using the [default] DirectX renderer it is noticeably faster than the native Linux client, which is obviously using OpenGL.

I had a P3 600mhz, 300 or so meg of ram, geforce4 mx440, and It was my linux box for awhile. I decided one gay to install ut2004 on it and get it running. So I did, and got about 30 fps after turning the settings all the way down, and editing the ini file. Never tried it in windows though, so i have nothing to compare.

My actually computer is a Athlon 2800+, Geforce 6600GT, 1 gig of ram. All I really play on it is CounterStrike: Source. However, I just finished Call of Duty 2, and have Black and White 2 and AOE 3 installed on it.
