    I use Gamespot for my downloads. Some recommendations are the Battlefield 2 demo, Half-Life 2 demo and the more recent F.E.A.R demo

    As pointed out Gamespot - I also use http://www.3dgamers.com and http://www.fileplanet.com - both requre a free membership (fileplanet has an optional payment for faster downloads.

    Definately get FEAR (wow)! As for the HL2 demo, you'll need to install Steam (www.steampowered.com) & install the demo via the steam app. You should also try "Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory" - nice.
