    Ok here's the thing. Just got a gorgeous iMac 24", 8800GT graphics card with 4gb ram and 3.06ghz. I would like to buy a good game like battlefield 2142 or Call of Duty 4. I have been reading complaints from mac users that have the same specs as I do having problems with games like these. I am worried too, now. In fact I am debating on whether or not to just install windows on bootcamp and use that as my way of playing games. With these specs I kind of plan on playing with the graphics settings on these games to high detail. Can anyone help me out with info?

    I would love to hear some recommendations too seeing as I just purchased the exact same computer.

    In my experience, you'll always get less framerate on the OSX version of most games. Sometimes it's not that big of a deal, sometime it is....depends on the quality of the port. If you plan on gaming seriously, get windows. Oh and by the way it's not a 8800GT it's a 8800GS, not quite as good.

    I played a lot of Call of Duty on the exact same machine and it ran great. I suggest you also check out Team Fortress 2, it runs unbelievably good on this machine and it's a blast.

    I've got some games for my 24" iMac. Spore, Battlefield, some Ambrosia stuff. It all runs good. But then I can boot into XP and play Team Fortress 2 on high in full res with a great frame rate and no lag.
