Might need a faster CPU, or more RAM. When I had a 1.3 gHz CPU and 256 MB RAM, it used to take noticeable time to load segments. Now I've got a 3 gHz CPU and 1 GB RAM, and it's as smooth as Charisma Carpenter's behind.

My problem is with the video card. It's a crappy built in that came with my crappy VIA motherboard. Specs are 256 meg RAM and 2.4 GHz AMD Athlon but I can't use it to it's full potential because of this VIA p.o.s.

Video cards aren't that expensive these days, and neither is memory. Do yourself a favor, and get some manner of upgrade to both. You don't need top-of-the-line, just something that will keep you more or less current.

I'd say Fallout 1 & 2 or Torment. All are still sold, but you can easily find them on the shelf for ~$10-15. Well worth the money.

Nobody mentioned these:

Dark Queen of Krynn
Death Knights of Krynn
Champions of Krynn
Secret of Silverblades
Curse of Azure Bonds
Pool of Radiance

and others of the SSI gold packet that are out there... graphics isn't high agenda but you get hours of good gameplay and excellent storyline... god I used to play these for hours

ADOM is also a superb game with lots of neat places. A little difficult maybe...

I liked Crystalis a lot, it was an Action/RPG for the NES.

Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG for the SNES.

Landstalker, Phantasy Star IV and Shadowrun for the Genesis.

The PC has had many RPGs of course, some of the more notable ones:

Planescape: Torment
Wizardry 7 & 8
Arcanum
Daggerfall
Wasteland
Fallout 1 & 2
Gothic 1 & 2
Arx Fatalis
Star Control II (it's more of an Action/RPG)

Now, let's see about Playstation:

Tales of Destiny (battle-system was cool)
Xenogears
Thousand Arms
Persona
Suikoden
Breath of Fire 3 & 4 (I think that number 4 must have had the best animation for PSX)

If you like console RPGs, you may really like Grandia for the Sega Saturn. It is in Japanese however, but I can't help mentioning it. And I know that the PSX has a version of this game (in English), but I think that the 2d graphics looked better on the Saturn.
