    Hey guys being a noob here I am going to spit out my specs.

    Machine Name: Power Mac G5
    Machine Model: PowerMac7,3
    CPU Type: PowerPC G5 (2.2)
    Number Of CPUs: 2
    CPU Speed: 2 GHz
    L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
    Memory: 5 GB
    Bus Speed: 1 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: 5.1.8f7

    For the video card i have the GeForce 6800 GT. I am looking for the top 10 games you guys can suggest to me. I am into games like Fable, FFVII, ( I can play doom3 but it is for short amount of time) I am more of a RPG person.

    that's a very nice system

    sounds like you're a world of warcraft man. it's a MMORPG and it's meant to be great fun (although i've never played it myself)

    Well Fable is meant to becoming before the years out. You could also get into World of Warcraft, Kinghts of the old Republic or Neverwinter Nights.

    Its a pity the Morrowind series never made it to Mac.

    Go have a look over at InsideMacGames for lots of Mac games

    You have got to try Unreal Tournament 2004!
    Vehicle CTF online is a thrill ride!

    That game kicks major gluteus maximus!

    I hope they come out with Fable for the mac!!

    You are either OFF YOUR HEAD, or you're referring to disk space. jtalerico is referring to RAM, or physical memory.

    May I politely ask what you do that requires 7 gigs of RAM? There are precious few tasks that can even pretend to put that much RAM to use...:p

    Your sig says that you have dual 2.2 GHz G5 - that's not true. You have dual 2 Ghz. There's no 2.2 ghz G5. Look more carefully at your original post with ur specs.

    As for games, I recommend Knights of the Old Republic, UT2004, Battlefront.

    I'll make an attempt:

    Civ III
    Warcraft III
    Warcraft III Frozen Throne Expansion
    Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast
    Civ IV
    The Sims (+ expansions)
    KOTOR
    The Sims 2

    I do not play all that many games on the Mac, so that is all I can offer. Though I do plan on getting World of Warcraft soon and am looking to buy Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds if anyone has a copy to sale.
