    I think I'm coming up on eight years on this computer :o

    I don't know actually. Technology moves too fast. I'm running a P4 HT 3.0Ghz.

    Civ 4, SF4, CS Source, Left 4 Dead... some games that could play on your new laptop, assuming you have a decent videocard in it.

    Console games ported to PC always look better on PC. May need a gamepad for some of them though cuz some console ports have shitty controls with KB/M.

    I'm almost done Indigo Prophecy... not an amazing looking game but innovative & pretty awesome... spiritually prequel to Heavy Rain.

    Just check Steam's deals page, you'll probably find cheap awesome looking games. Borderlands, Dragon Age, Batman..

    Wow still no videocard info.

    I recommend you stay away from GP.
