What's the most you can game with a mid 2012 mini?

I know I know, Macs arent for gaming, but I was just curious to hear your experiences with gaming on the 2012 Minis. What's honestly the top a 2.3 Ghz quad core 8Gb Ram Intel Hd 4000, Fusion Drive Mac mini handle in regards to gaming?


Any ideas, thoughts or opinions?

The HD4000 will be the limiting factor. See here and scroll down to look at the gaming results.

Arkham Asylum, World of Warcraft, Borderlands, Diablo 3 all play fine on my MacBook Pro with HD3000 so the 4000 will perform fine for most games, just don't expect 1080p with ultra settings.
