Is it worth downloading bootcamp and parallels?

I hear that parallels works alot better with bootcap installed, i would use it for gaming(not a hardcore gamer by the way). Is it worth installing both and getting rid of the hassle of booting up again or are the games that much worse to play on parallels?

Thanks, Connor.

Depends on your needs!
Only really low games will be playable via VM. For me is parallels + bootcamp a good combination, sometimes I just need to fix or open a file in windows and don't want to reboot..

I would also like to know this are you saying that with parallels installed if you have a bootcamp partition you will be able to open it in parallels without having to restart and close out of mac osx.

yes,

By non HC games I take it you mean games that aren't that demanding?
