    I was trying out the mac in my sig for gaming and so I downloaded the COD demo. I turned the settings clear down and iIt ran, but it was really, really slow and the gun would turn black every 2 secs or so. Is that weird for my machine? Can I make it go any faster? I've tried repairing permissions. Also, the vid card is a Radeon 9000 pro.

    Very weird. I can run CoD at 800 X 600 on my 933 MHz.

    That would be my guess. If you like shooters I don't think it would be a risk to just pick up the game. I love it.

    Could my PC100 ram be an issue? Maybe the 2x agp slot?

    CoD runs a bit slow on my machine but it is stable. You should bump your RAM to 1GB, but with a 1GHz CPU you should get decent performance.

    Try the full version of the game, the demo may have some issues.

    Nah, the RAM doesn't need to be bumped. It's probaly the demo.

    I never played it with less than 1GB but I'm CPU limited anyway. <shrugs>

    My 640 MB of RAM serves me well for Call of Duty. Though I should bump it up to 1 GB to get a better performance out of United Offensive and Breakthrough.
