    How Will BF3 Beta Perform on my iMac? Other games run good, excluding GTA IV Sadly, and I usually can play others on High to Ultra.. But with BF3 Being So Beautiful and Graphics Intensive how will it do?

    CPU - 3.06 GHz i3
    RAM - 4 GB
    HDD - 500 GB 7200-rpm
    GPU - HD 4670 256mb (DX 10.1 - Running Catalyst 11.10 Beta BF3 Drivers)
    Resolution - 1920x1080

    You should be able to play it on low settings.. Even though your video card only hs 256mb.
    Here are the requirements from battlefield3.com

    I'm more curious how the top end 2011 will handle it... Guess I'll fnd out tomorrow.

    Hows it running so far?

    Im on my 21 inch iMac and I highly doubt it'll run smoothly on VMWare or Parallels.
    Plus Lion made my computer slow
    And my 256mb ATI Radeon Graphics card doesn't help

    It won't run at all.. Not just smoothly.
    Don't bother even trying to run a game like this in a virtual machine.

    Even if you boot your iMac in windows you will hardly be able to run it on low settings.
