    club gaming

    Right, so the schools just spent around 50k kitting out a new room, HDMI projectors/smart board/ tables/ chairs/ Gigabit switches etc/around 25k was spent on 32 New Dell XPS 420's; Q6600 processors and a ATI 2600Xt,2gig ram etc. the boss is hoping to set it up as a gaming club, anybody got any ideas for games baring in mind age rating and the fact computer spec wont matter, money for software is also not a problem.

    Ive already looked at a few other threads mentioning quake and some older games, But with the Spec of the machines, a few more recent games might help get the moneys worth out of these computers.

    At the moment the only game installed is Star Wars Battfront 2 as its a PG title.

    Will be grateful for any help, thanks.

    mmo's are out of the question seing as they will only be able to see the Network as far as the Lan, i guess any game, that isnt too difficult to pickup and will entertain some teens for 45 mins. A racing game that could be used over the lan for Tornements Etc sounds pretty good.

    Get a Source license. They do a "lan" license. You'll have to had a word with the LEA about opening ports (i guess)
