It's not like Nexuiz is paticularly light either. :-)
But I like it.
If you have more lower hardware, or even if you have faster hardware another couple games to look at are Tremulous (which is very entertaining and is more of a 'thinking man's death match) or Warsow which is amazingly fast rendering and good looking shooter.
I don't know how warsow does it, but it's fast. The only crappy thing about Warsow is that they have this online mode thing built into the game that tries to check and make sure that binaries have not been mofidied, I assume to try to prevent cheaters but it's very misguided. you can compile a copy for yourself if the binaries are not working on your system (for instance 64bit Debian), but you'll have a hard time finding a online server that will let you on.
