    Running something like Portal in a VM isn't the best idea even with a high end system. If you want to play Portal and other Valve games just wait a few more weeks when Steam for Mac comes out and play the native ports.

    If you want to play high-end 3D Win* games, I would look into WINE and CrossOver Games instead of Virtual Machines.
