Default What games should I get?

The only games i have used to test out my new system are HL2, CS:S, and COD. I want more games, which should I get? I was thinking DOOM3. Would I be able to run that fine? I can run HL2 maxed out at 1280x1024 with 4x aa and 4x af very smoothly, I haven't tried cranking the aa and af even higher so maybe I could. What games would you suggest?

Get the F.E.A.R. Demo and crank it up to max, that will tax your system quite well.

yes exactly. U just might want to be carefull about the fsaa. If u put it to x16 it might be too much for ur system. That game is crazy but u should be able to run it fine with the maximum graphics aslong as u keep the fsaa down.

Quake 4 also when it comes out. Oh my god it looks freakin good:

Reminds me of Unreal Tournament. I'm getting this game when it comes out. The enemies look like the Borg from Star Trek where metal meets flesh. Ewww....
