    use bootcamp and boot to windows, keep all your games. you'll have the best of both worlds.

    Tough luck. Boot Camp is the only way to play them on your Mac without taking a massive hit to performance. Using something like Parallels or Fusion will result in the game running very slowly.

    You will get MUCH worse performance in the game running it on OS X compared to Windows no matter what you do. This is because the graphics drivers included in OS X are complete junk.

    yah but for now im not worreid about performance, iv actually been able to test a BF2 cider for OSX, the one i got only had singleplayer but it was actually relativly good. i wouldnt mind playing it! that is, when i can find the multiplayer one

    and really, COD4 has been made for OS X already, i just need to figure out how to not have to buy that version since i already spent 50 bucks on the windows version
