Hey all. Powermac G5 Dual 1.8 owner here. Just returned my iMac 27 i7 for a replacement that should arrive within a week. During my three days with the iMac, I installed VMware Fusion and installed my dusty copy of Half-Life 2 so I can get back to playing counterstrike after 5 years. After googling for hours, my head was spinning. People recommended different programs, Bootcamp, Parallels, VMWare, something with a C _ _ _? (Edit: Crossover!) I went ahead and installed in through VMWare, upped my RAM usage to 4GB (out of 10GB) and used 2 out of 4 cores to run it. Used Windows 7 Ultimate.. Counterstrike had some issues, but gameplay was ok besides having messed up graphics on weapons and certain maps, etc. Lag was present due to being on wireless of course, but I lowered all the graphics optioned for better gameplay, but that got me thinking. With a new quadcore mac (iMac in this case) with plenty of RAM and drive space and a pretty good GPU, what am I doing wrong here? Is this a problem with Counterstrike or will I run into this will Call of Duty, etc? I upgraded my DirectX too, I just was not sure what else I needed to do to supplement my experience and have my PC gaming experience run smoothly on my Mac. Thanks for any help you can offer!
