    Hi guys I've got an i7 iMac on the way and I thought I should get some usage out of the graphics card by buying a couple of mac games

    one of them COD4

    I use to play it online on xbox 360 in 07 but sold it all later that year but I really liked it when there was many people playing it

    also I don't know how online gaming works on computers, how do you find other players and hosts?

    Joining is pretty straightforward, and yes you'll be playing against both OS X and Windows users.

    Thanks, I assume I will need to join local (Australian) servers to get reasonable ping times (I remember hating lag from Northern hemisphere servers)

    There was no way of choosing on xbox live, is it possible to chose loacal servers with computer gaming?

    The Ping listing on the side is what your ping is to that server.

    Best thing about computer games, low ping servers. Playing a game with 9 ping, then playing some 360 game and having 200+, massive difference. PS3 games seem to be better, maybe because a few have server browsers.
