3d mark 05. I know its not a game but everytime i buy a new graphics card, I always run 3d mark to see the cards "performance". Sad but true.
Heh, 3DMark05 was first for me also but to seriously answer your question, Doom 3 was the first real game I tried.

i had to give CS Source a try with 8xSAA 16xAF 1280x1024 maxed everything, needless to say it was butter smooth and stuck at 60fps i *heart* vsync

I think it was 3DMark05... first real game was FarCry I believe.

Hmm, 3dmark05 was first. But as for real games...Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Followed shortly by the FEAR demo.
For apps 3dmark05 & for games i think Doom3 timedemo.
FEAR Demo. not really a full game persay but was a good judge of how well the system is running. and its running very well :firedevil

FEAR Demo here too, could have been running better, but most of thats down to not having 2GB Ram. That game seriously eats up ram for textures.

SimCity 4... shut up, I was excited to be able to play the game in ultra hi-res hi-qual after my old tBird 1.2 with GeForce 2 GTS Ultra could barely run the game anymore (now that my population has gotten too high for old equipment!)
Next, I played Doom 3... quite nice... and then I moved on to San Andreas... very fun with all the settings jacked up to the max!
FEAR demo - soft shadows at last!
I did try first my own opengl engine :)

SplinterCell Chaos Theory

It was the reason I upgraded, and even though it's not the prettiest game ever, it is demanding in a way most single player games are not. You *feel* any stutter in the graphics engine immediately.
Since then I've seen far superior eye-candy, but the games that really make me happy I bought the G70 are Source and D3 engine games.

Farcry running @ 1600x1200, Maxed Settings, 8x AF, HDR Lighting

FEAR, and bf2 is a close second
Doom III and then Far Cry. Installed UT 2004 and had alternating game picture with white bands after first being OK the first day????????????? The other two games looks spectacular over the previous 6800 Ultra system
