GMA 950=Boot Camp Battlefield 2/Half Life 2?

I want to play my battlefield 2 game SOOOO freakin bad and maybe some half life 2

I was wondering if i could play the normal BF2 and HF2(not the modern combat BF) on super low settings on a 1.83GHz macbook Core Duo w/ 1gb ram

Well if you already have bootcamp up and running, you could always just try it and see?

Half-Life 2 should run fine, especially if the settings are turned down a tick. As for Battlefield, I've honestly got no idea. I guess you could YouTube for a video or something?

You cannot play BF2 on the GMA950 because it requires hardware transform and lighting, which the GMA950 doesn't have. Sorry.

HL2 runs pretty well on it. and i dont think BF2 works. although 2 gigs of RAM may help

Remember you're talking about the low end of the Mac graphics lineup. Most of the better games require a lot of power that low end video solutions don't have. I bought a G4 tower that came with a Rage 128 Pro 16mb graphics card that couldn't play games for crap. That was the low end back when this machine was new. I have a Radeon 9700 in there now and games run a lot better. Unfortunately, the mini can't be upgraded, so you're stuck with what you have. Be sure you read the system requirements on any game before you buy it in the future as it may not run adequately, if at all, on your machine. If gaming is your goal, you need a machine with a better graphics card in the future. My brother has a 24" iMac with the 7300GT graphics card and that's not even high end for games and graphics work although it does work well enough.
