I would personally recommend also picking up Disciples of Steel. It's a derivative of the Gold Box games but marks the first of very few attempts to merge both RPG & turn based tactical wargame. It also has a combat damage model better than anything I had ever seen before it. You can target different body parts & so can your enemies. Expect to come away from tough fights with bruised ribs, concussion, even a broken leg! You can get this game from HOTU or Abandonia but you will need some resourcefulness to get past the copy protection I'm afraid.
Have you played Wizards & Warriors? Thats a pretty interesting continuation of the Wizardry series. Probably available for a dollar or two somewhere.
Finally, I'd recommend considering Jeff Vogels Spiderweb games such as Avernum (available from spiderweb.com), Prelude to Darkness (although it is horrendously buggy - from zero-sum.com) & currently in development Mount & Blade for something very different.
