ello Macnn members. Thanks for looking at this thread. I am pretty "n00bish" when it comes to computers. I've never tinkered inside one before, never known what system bus does, how memory works, etc. So, please bear with me. I'm a mac user, have been all my life, but mainly use my mac for games. Yes, a true mac gamer. I know PCs are much more qualified for games, but I can't support Pentium or Windows - it's just not right. I've been going to LAN parties with all my PC friends, and, well, as you can guess, am constantly made fun of I'm always the slowest computer there, with the worst FPS and choppiest game play. Now I know Macs aren't meant for games really, but when you can get a PC for $800 that easily outperforms my G5 that costs $1300, it's discouraging. I just have a feeling that I'm really just not allowing my G5 to perform at it's maximum potential. So here's my question. I want to know ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING, whether it's hardware, software, tweaking, etc. that will make my computer faster. Is there anyway to totally tweak my machine out for gaming? Any advice or words of wisdom would be MUCH APPRECIATED! Thanks again for taking a look. And if this belongs in another category of the forums, please move it! Sorry for any inconvenience.
