    Has anyone tried running NHL 2007 on a Windows XP partition particularly on a Macbook 2.0? Sounds like it requires the following:

    System requirements:
    CPU Speed: 933MHz
    Disk Space: 2.0GB
    Display: AGP Video Card with 64MB+, NVIDIA GeForce 3, ATI Radeon 8500+
    Memory (RAM): 256MB+
    Operating System Compatibility: Win98/ME/2000/XP, Not Mac Compatible

    Where am I???
    I've run other EA Sports titles in XP (via Bootcamp) on my 2.0GHz 20" iMac, and I've had no problem, so in principle it should work; a XP/Bootcamp Mac is a PC in almost every way.

    HOWEVER, there is an ATI X1600 (256MB) in my machine, whereas your MB doesn't have a dedicated 3D video card, which might be an issue with a 3D-intensive game like NHL2007.

    It should run fine. I had it running on a P4 3.0GHz with a POS X300 at 1024x768 with no issues. 1280x1024 was choppy at times but still OK. On a Dell Core Duo with integrated Intel video it was OK. 07 is basically a modded 06 (which in turn was a slightly modded 2005) so if you could run it two years ago, you can run it today. I vaguely recall running 2005 with a Radeon 7500 with no issues. The game itself is horrid though!

    IME the only EA Sports game which taxes video cards is the Tiger Woods series. I noticed a significant improvement going from a X300 to the slightly less crappy X1300, and a huge improvement to a 7600GT (as expected). Madden 07 taxes the video hardware slightly but I was still getting 30+fps with a X1300 at 1024x768 and all details turned up full.
