Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

As the resolution goes up, the framerates go down. Overclocking does boost the MSI FX5200-TDR128 enough to make it gameable though.
