Steam allows you to do that with any game originally associated it with. By this I mean games that are on your games list without you having to manually add them. Some games, such as WarCraft III, make you put the disk in to play. However, WarCraft III and some of the like have released patches that allow you to play the games without the disks.

Ahh i see, so it would be best to just keep the disk anyway?

I take it there is no point in buying used pc games because the serial code will already be used?

Not usually. If it is unregistered, then you can sell it. Most people skip registration anyway. Just make sure the seller had a good feedback rating when buying used games though.
