    Currently I use parallels for running windows. This works great, but I cannot really play any games.

    I am looking to use bootcamp, but I still want the flexibility of parallels.

    I know this is possible to do, but how is the performance of parallels and are there any major problems?

    It is going to be a pain to migrate, but it will be worth it if I can get the best of both worlds.

    Use boot camp which will run at native speeds. Then parallels will be able to access the partition, so you can use like you do now for non-gaming.
