    I am planning to buy a new Mac this year and with Boot Camp I hope to be playing some budget PC games in Windows mode. Can anyone make suggestions of older 3D games that will run well with the Intel graphics chip of the Mac Mini? Would Dredd Vs Death or Half Life run with more than thirty frames per second for example?

    Also, are emulators of the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 advanced enough on the PC to run at full speed on the Mac Mini?

    Half Life will run fine - I haven't played it on the Intel mini with XP, but it ran on an SFF with Intel intergrated graphics - and that system was 3 years old at least. Ran smooth at high res, so you won't have a problem at all. So game from around that period should be what to aim for...

    RCT2 stole my life. It uses minimal specs, I even think it ran well under VPC!

    I hear this site has some good free games. ;)
