    Can the 1 Ghz G4 IBook handle Neverwinter Nights? Do you have to crank the details down significantly or will the Radeon 9200 run the game in all its glory? Also, can anyone suggest a good golf game?

    Thanks,
    Dennis

    For what it's worth, my iBook G3/700 played acceptably on NWN, and it had a Radeon Mobility (7000) with 16 MB VRAM (5-12 fps). On my 1 GHz PB with a GFG5200/32MB, it runs 20-25 fps. You'll be fine.

    Is the Mac version compatible with all the user created content that you can download from nwvault?

    It should be. The content is just data files, not executables... that's actually why you can install all of the PC expansions--you just have to move the files around manually instead of having the benefit of an installer.

    It will run great. I get pretty good fps at 800x600, and I'm on a G4/733 with a 64 MB Radeon 8500.

    How is nV compared to Ati for NWN in MAC enviroment?
    Because in Windows nV is way faster in this game especially...

    Oh yeah. I forgot to mention that the fame rates I gave you were at 1024 x 768.

    I play Neverwinter all the time on my 800mhz G4 iMac with a GForce4 MX with 32mb vram. I can't have ALL the setting up all the way, and it occasionally slows if its a large amount of stuff going on on the screen, but other than THAT.
