    I just got a killer comp and want to start gettin' into gamin' again. I have hl2 and bf2 both great, love em. Also have WoW and I quit, and you can too! Anyhow I love RTS and the last one I played was wc3 which rocked.

    I have a pretty good idea what rtss are good but I'm lookin for one with a really good online player base because that's where all the fun is. Warhammer and the new expansion have that? Maybe AoE 3 will have that. Any suggestions?

    AOE3 will be great for multiplayer (there has been a "mishap" about the games release ;) ). I also heard good things about act of war (check the link).

    Both games have demos so you can try them out.

    Earth 2160. Pretty cool if you like base building and resource gathering.

    My recomendations are no different from the others: Rome Total War + Barbarion Invasion, Warhammer, Homeworld 2, Earth 2160 is good also, you could try Ground control 2, Black & White 2, Act of War, ect.....

    C&C Generals Zero Hour still kicks butt IMHO. Have dusted off Perimeter recently and found that a bit of a larf, too!

    I might be showing my age, but the original RA complete with "Tesla rush" online (through kali, of course!) was a thrill hard to replicate today. :D

    I love RA. I can still remember building around 50 advanced power plants to surround my base with telsa coils before a mammoth tank assault took me out.

    lol - RA was seminal rts stuff.

    I recall how the aftermath patch stopped the whol tesla/mammoth rush dead in its tracks by limiting increases to production time so that only the second factory/C-Yard added a benefit. Tore the heart out the game. Thank god RA2/Yuris didn't do the same...get them Kirovs flying!
