Hello All! I just recently built a computer during Christmas, and I really want to try out some games to really "test" the system. Any recommended games that really requires a good machine? or has alot of good graphics? Free ones, or ones to buy would be suffice.
Free ones (All available on Steam except when specified) - Planetside 2, Blacklight: Retribution, League of Legends(not on steam), Team Fortress 2
Ones to buy with hella good graphics - Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3, Crysis 3, Metro 2033, Crysis 2 and 1. Especially Far Cry 3 and Crysis 3. Those are straight up eye candy, but you need a beast of a machine to run them.
A puzzle game that does really test your video card but only if you choose multiple connections of the items, it's much like bejewelled but more intense. It's called
"The Curse of Montezuma" and usually crashes toawrds thae last few puzzles.
Using the bombs and other extras to clear masses of objects seems to be the worst of worst however, if you don't use them and only use the connect of 3 or more objects, it doesn't take as many resources.
I played it on Windows 7 x64 8gb ram with a GT560 video card (and 850 watt PSU).
It costs about $10 retail.
Thanks guys for all of the recommendations! I'll get on them this weekend! As far as specs its nothing to much.

So far it seems to do well for what I need. Before I quit WoW i was gettin 100+ FPS in some places, but mostly around town with max graphics it was about 50FPS which is just fine for me. Since i recently quit WoW i've been looking at games to pick up!
