    I currently have a Mac Mini 2011 i7 2.7GHz dual core model which is not much fun for gaming, so am currently upgrading to a hackintosh with a GTX 660 graphics card.

    I know I am asking in the iMac forum, but that is because I think the iMac is a pretty ok gaming machine too.

    What Mac OS X game have the best game graphics you have seen?
    I want to be blown away by my new machine when it´s done.

    Deus Ex Human Revolution has a very particular, stylish aesthetic. I love XCOM, but the graphics aren't really anything to write home about.

    If you really love graphics, The Witcher 2 might just be up your alley.

    If you have a Hackintosh and would see "best game graphics" then you should sell your GTX660 and buy a GTX680 and install Windows on that machine!
    Then you can get ultimative game graphics with "crysis 3" or "metro last light" or "battlefield 3"

    It's ~$6 on GOG right now for their summer sale daily deal; bear in mind that it comes with a massive load of extras (soundtrack, artbook, game guides, bonus movies, making-of videos, wallpapers, gameworld maps, papercraft models, nudie photos of Triss, etc.), and it's totally DRM-free.

    Need for Speed: Most Wanted has the best lighting/sunrises/shadows I've ever seen.

    Well for $6 I have to give it a try whenever the machine is build. Just bought it - thanks for the tip.

    Any other suggestions?

    No "Windows" please, I don´t like it. The GTX 660 is kind of the most powerful card I can run with the PSU I have, a 400W Seasonic X400 I already had laying around. Pretty awesome PSU so did not see the need to swap out for a more powerful model.

    Where I think the graphics in Assassins Creed 2 are some of the most aesthetically pleasing I've seen in a contemporary game, my wife is wowed by Starcraft 2 visuals -- particularly the jungle levels.

    I recommend BioShock Infinite. It comes with the option of either DirectX10 or 11. The minimum system requirements for the game are low, as in really, really low; needing only an Athlon X2 5200+ and an ATI Radeon HD 3850 for example. At those specs, you’ll be getting basic DX10 and everything on minimum. The recommended specs still aren’t all that high either, deeming a Q6600 and a GeForce GTX 560 worthy of playing Infinite at DX11 settings. Impressive to say the least, but perhaps a little worrying it doesn’t require top end components for top end graphics.

    From a pure graphics (both dyanamic and static) I would say Witcher 2. I did not enjoy the game play much, but it is really a good choice if you want to show off graphics performance to an audiance.

    I like the graphics and movement in the Batman Arkham games...but then I'm a comic geek.
