    Doom 3!
    HL2, Call Of Duty United offensive, Rome Total War, Sims 2.

    Older games will run faster at a higher frame rates, higer resolutions and full graphical settings. Also enjoyable to see.

    Rainbow six 3, Home World 2, UT2004, Ground Controll 2, Far Cry, Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, Microsof tFlight sim 2004.

    The list goes on!

    try Morrowind, that game runs like crap on even really good pc's so if you can get it to run smoothly, consider yourself blessed.

    aa is antialiasing, and what that does is "blur" the edges of things much like the xbox does to stop jagged edges. If you are playing your games in a resolution above 1024x768 then there's probably very little need for using it, as you won't really notice much difference, and it will give you a bigger performance hit the higher the resolution.

    have you checked your graphics cards settings?
    I recomend the following:

    AA- Application controlled

    AF-Application controlled

    image settings-Quality

    Vertycal sync- Application controlled

    (for a games like CS Source that doesnt havey any I turned it on.)

    Force mipmaps-none

    conformant texture clamp-on

    trilinear optimization-on

    the rest off.

    And single display.

    This helps to keep your games running smothely, yet with good graphics.
