    my guess is fine, you more than meet the requirements. Tell me if you get one of them, I have the exact same computer (great little thing, isn't it?) and would like to hear about them

    FWIW my 1.25 AlBook has a lower GPU than that, but runs UT 2004 quite well. And people with the same AlBook as you report even better speeds at higher detail than I get. So I think you'd be fine but I haven't played those. Certainly a G5 tower would allow higher fps with greater detail :)

    I'm sure a G5 could outplay my PB any day. I'll let you guys know how it goes, thanks.

    Both should be fine. Above requirements and you've got the power.

    Black Hawk runs decently. It's enjoyable. I think it would run better if i had 1 gig of ram. But it runs ok with all the settings on low. It doesn't look that bad either. I still have to try BF1942. I'll post again when i try it out.

    Ram makes little difference in BF1942 since the textures are so low. I was on the aspyr server with 2 other blokes, one on a real dual GHz MDD and one on a 1GHz G4 iMac. My OCed dual GHz (GF4Ti) has 512 ram, the real dual GHz had 1 gig of it and a 9600 i think, and the iMac had a 64 meg GF4MX. we all got average 20fps at high AND low quality.
