I recently got a new graphics card, and wanted to see how well my card can handle games.

Any recommendations?

(It's an eGeforce 8600 GT, and I'm able to run F.E.A.R. Combat smoothly with nearly everything maxed.)

Company of Heroes. With the dx10 patch and all the settings maxed out this game takes a hell of a system to run, if you can run it you will be witness to some truly amazing visuals. The game still looks stunning dx9 too and is enough to test any gfx card.

Alright I'll check it out. Thanks.

My card is DX10 enabled, but I'm running XP.

Don't worry about the dx10, its still stunning dx9. Especially when you hold the alt key and pan the camera around the battlefield. Of course it has the added bonus of being a fantastic game too.

Should be right for a while, maxed out at a respectable fps for a while. Try medieval 2 TW with 10000 men on screen, its brutal.

Supreme Commander (looks awesome on max settings. The units have this awesome look to them)

Infernal (may not be the best game ever but it looks excellent)
