    I'm getting a new Mac to make my media hub as well as other things. I still not sure about getting an iMac or mac pro but one of the things I want to do with it is game running Windows in Boot Camp. I know the video card in the iMac is mid range. Can anyone who has an iMac or Mac Pro tell me if they have ever been to http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest

    and tested there system to see how well they can run the new games ( Crysis, Frontlines, COD4) and if you can could you post a screen shot. Just trying to get all the info I can before I buy.

    you would probably find more helpful info with a search over at barefeats.com, some great bench marks and they often test the same cards with windows games as well for a comparison.

    Check out youtube as well. I have seen videos of iMacs playing both Crysis and CoD4.

    The Mac Pro with an 8800GT will demolish a iMac with a HD 2600Pro.

    If you're looking at playing Crysis, then you'll want an 8800GT.

    The Windows version of CoD4 runs faster then the OS X one. IF you want an iMac for gaming then get the top of the line 24" with the Radeon 4850.
