Half-life 2 series (and other Source games), Far Cry, Doom 3, The Sims 2, old Grand Theft Auto games (Grand Theft Auto 3 series), The Lord of the Rings, the Battle for Middle Earth series, older Command & Conquer games, Halo, etc.

My current secondary PC is a Pentium 4 2.8GHz (Northwood "C") w/Hyper-threading, 2GB 400MHz DDR, and a GeForce 6800 GS AGP, so it's similar enough. It runs the games I listed fine.

The Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHz Extreme Edition. Behind that, the Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHz Northwood (same as the Extreme Edition save no L3 cache and a locked multiplier).

Unfortunately, it probably will. Unreal Tournament III on the secondary PC I listed above was nearly a slideshow. On my signature PC, only instead with a Pentium 4 641 (3.2GHz, 2MB L2, Hyper-threading) at 4.25GHz, it was playable, but not ideal (espeically since you want fast frame rates for that game). Unless you clock it very high, forget it, and even then it's not that great.
