Also check for driver updates, i've had many a game that would fail because of outdated/wrong drivers(I don't know what my brother or dad do when they install these I thnk they just hit whatever comes up first...).
When looking at game sites for issue especially pay attention to known 64bit issues. 64bit has made an incredible push to become the norm lately and some issues can come up with gameplay(Diablo2 on a 64 bit machine used to run so fast as to be unplayable).
Hope that helps a little
