I just got a second 7800GT and I want to try to put to more use, so what are some games that are really worth getting that I don't have with great graphics?

System specs below.

Here are the games I already have:

Half Life 2
Counter-strike: source
Need for Speed Most Wanted
Age of Empires III
F.E.A.R.
Far Cry

Are there other games that I should really get along the same lines as these? I've thought about BF2 and CoD 2, but I can't decide if they're worth it or not. Any help is appreciated.

You definitely want to get CoD 2 it actually has a setting to optimize the game on SLI systems. It's the only game I know of that does. I can't wait to see it as I just set up my sli yesterday but I want to plumb my second card in to the w/c loop before I crank on it.

Thanks for the replies. So you guys really think that BF2 and CoD2 are worth paying the money for? I'll have to really look into them.

Also, with Battlefield 2 I've heard that there is a significant increase in performance with 2GB of RAM, so even with SLI 7800GT's would the game still run awesome at 1600x1200 with only 1GB of high performance RAM?

being first to load every time is nice. got first pick from tanks, helis and can even take a base or two before anyone eles has loaded(push tab while playing).

I did finally get BF2 about a week and half ago and it's awesome. I also ended up getting a 2GB kit of ram and not only do the levels load faster, it allows me to play with all the settings maxed out. I found out that with SLI the cards will be totally bottlenecked with only 1GB. I went from maxed settings being unplayable to running at constant 70-100 fps with the 2GB kit. If you have SLI, 2GB of ram is a must. BTW, this is with 1600x1200 resolution.
