    You're on the bleeding edge! None of us have received our MBAs, so we can't address your problems...

    Like the other poster said: pics! :eek:

    What graphics card did you have in your old Powermac G5? In any case, I think it's safe to assume that what ever graphics card you had in your G5 is more powerful than the one in the MacBook Air.

    Also, some of these games might not be Intel compatible, even with all the updates.

    Edit: Here's a list of game compatibility on the Mac: http://guides.macrumors.com/Universal_Binary_Games
