This may be simple, games?

I'm not very new at this, but I haven't really played with my RH 7.3 system that much yet. What kind of games can I run on this thing? I've got wine going & stuff, but I haven't been brave enough to try out games designed for windows yet. The machine is a dual P-III @ 1 Ghz, with 512 MB of ram.. so it should run just about anything.

well you can go here and browse a pretty big list of games for linux, as of wine it all depends on what game it is..... some work and some don't and its as general as that....if you have some win games in mind, then just post their names and i (or someone else) will dig up some links on how to get them running in wine...

also there are a lot of windows games that either 1) have linux counterparts (such as Quake 3, NeverWinter Nights) or 2) can be run using WineX at
