    I occasionally like to game and many games only support Windows

    So i was wondering if it is at all possible to use bootcamp with Vista or XP to play games? Such as online games that you need to install using a CD or a game that only needs CD no install?

    IF so which would be more suitable for playing them Visa or XP

    Cheers! :)

    I use vista via bootcamp as it is the latest operating system from microsoft and many new games only support vista and dx10. Although vista was the main reason I switched to mac it isn't all too bad for games so I would go with vista, but many people will say xp.

    Why would they say XP?

    Because Vista was mostly just a big mistake, and now Microsoft is going to be coming out with Windows 7 to fix it. What games would you be playing? XP should be fine.

    I have XP sp2, which is what Bootcamp can use -- unless it's been upgraded since I installed XP back in late October 2008.
