Good games for IBook 600MHz?
My used iBook runs surprisingly "fast". A handbrake DVD rip took only 4 hours, compared to the 500MHz iBook G3 at 8-9 hours, for a movie of similiar standard. I was thinking maybe some games would run well at low setting or 2 D.
Any suggestions and titles?

The original Sims plays very well on the older iBooks.
Perhaps Unreal Tournament 2004 would work too.
late 2006 iMac 17" (Intel Core Duo 2) with 4 GB and 4 TB internal hard drive; Mac OS X 10.6, iPhone 3GS on T-Mobile + a few Android phones (HTC Amaze, etc.)

You're not going to get good speed with UT2k4 on a G3 iBook. Period. I tried the demo on my 900G3 and it chugged quite severely. I can't imagine it being playable on the 600.
UT2k3, however should run alright, providing you've got a ton of ram, it runs decently on my 900 with 640mb Ram.
Anyhow, as our computers are basically indentical, apart from a few Mhz, I'll give some suggestions:
Deux Ex: This game is immersive and great. I recommend a playthrough of this game, it's OS9 only though, but that shouldn't be a problem.
Diablo II: Runs flawlessly, and has a Carbon App too.
Escape Velocity/EVO/EV Nova: Space Privateer game series. Well worth a play.
Heroes of Might and Magic III/IV: HIII should run flawlessly, but is OS9 only. Heroes Four would be a bit sluggish, but being a turn based game it won't matter that much. They're different enough though.
Total Annihilation: A better RTS than Starcraft IMO, and it should run like silk on an iBook.
That's a good list to get you started.
