Hi all need some help with the following I am thinking about installing Win7 via boot camp.

I have a 27 inch mid 2010 imac:
ATI Radeon HD 5750
Intel Core i5
2.8 GHz
4 GB.

How well will it perform with games such as
COD MW2
Skyrim
Crysis 2
and other games, examples would be great if you have the same machine?

Also when some says say runs well on medium settings how does that compare to the same game on something like the 360?

I have a friend who plays these games on the exact same computer except with 6gb of RAM.

He has played CoD modern warfare and it runs very well. Skyrim plays pretty well on medium settings and native res he says, and Crysis 2 at 1080 on very high is smooth as well.

Forgot to answer your second question. Consoles generally run on a mix of low and medium settings.

Thanks a lot.

So would I be right in saying that this mac is about the same power or slightly more powerful as a 360 for games if I use bootcamp?
