Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Just got a brand new PC - what games have I missed?

It is an i5 2500K system, with a GTX560 GPU, and 8GB of RAM. So pretty much capable of running anything.
My previous system had a decent GPU, a GTX460, but it was handicapped by an older processor a Core 2 Duo, and only 2gb of RAM, as well as being only Windows XP.
My question is...what great graphically intensive games have I missed?
I have considered Crysis, although I've heard mixed reports on how good the actual game is, I'm not looking just for something gimmicky that looks good.
I'm planning on getting Just Cause 2 now that I'm on Windows7 (since it doesn't run on XP), and in a few months obviously Deus Ex : Human Revolution is coming out. But besides those two, I'm a bit lost on games, as I've pretty much played nothing but Starcraft 2 since August last year, and I'm really keen to play any games that my older system couldn't run or perhaps couldn't run well.
