    If you are running Boot Camp you will be fine with any and all of those games.

    Agreed.

    FYI, Hitman: Absolution, Max Payne 3, CoD, Assassins Creed 3 run all pretty well on the 17" mid 2010 Macbook Pro, which is prehistoric hardware compared to your 2012 iMac. :D

    Ditto Agreed

    Yes, that should be fine.

    Recognize that when you boot into Win7 via Bootcamp, you are running an actual Windows computer, even though it is a Mac. With the i7 and 680 GPU, you won't have any problems.

    FYI, Apple usually does *not* update their Bootcamp drivers regularly, so you will likely have to update your video card drivers on your own (and any other important drivers). This was important for me for Skyrim.
