    I know it's a tall order, but are there any first-person shooters that I could run on my stock Mini without choking it to death?

    If not, are there any less graphically challenging RPG-style games you'd recommend for my Mini and me? :)

    Medal of Honor(prefectly)
    Call of Duty
    Diablo 2(perectly)
    Halo(low details)
    WoW(low details)
    Unreal Tournament 2004(low detail)
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein(perfectly)

    Well, I could emulate Classic, but that extra step would leave me with hardly any RAM for the actual game....

    What machine specs do you have for that? I've been thinking of replacing our second computer (a HP PC that's evil) with a mini. The only thing we'd do to tax it would be play multiplayer Neverwinter Nights on it. The HP plays the base game just fine but won't handle either of the expansion packs. In some ways, it won't be worth the money unless Hordes runs well (and I'm not too picky about what constitues "well"...fluid gameplay is more important than high-detail graphics).
