demos to try on a new PC

category: general [glöplog]
I've bought a new PC (won't be here till next moneday or tuesday though), and I want to try some gear-demanding demos... it's not ultra-high end, but not too bad either.

It's an AMD Phenom QuadCore 9950 @ 2.6Mhz, with 4Gb of DDR2 1066 RAM and a 1Gb GeForce 9800GTX+

Anyone cares to fill up a download list? I've been usually looking only at videos lately since my PC was not up to run most modern demos at a decent resolution (CoreDuo 3Ghz, GeForce 8600GT), and I want to feel the high-resolution realtime feeling back :-)

but...omg. you act like it's your thread or something :)
but, i'd say, lifeforce etc, still, quite a few ASD prods... some 4Ks doing raytrace or pixel stuff are quite AWSUM OMG L33T too... but prolly i'm not the one to ask... some old hungarian 64K was quite cool too...cant remember the group now :)
also i watched debris in windowed mode (i think) and stretched it on my dualscreen , it was like, 2960 pixels worth of width, quite pleasing :)
but!...omg. your AMD runs laughably at 2.6MHz and i didnt nobody nor I didnt even notice.
I command you to run Amithlon or WinUAE and then any Amiga demo you can think of. Especially TBL ones, then move to demos that require gfx borad and quite a fast cpu(68060), then do whatever you want with your new PC =D
