    I'm getting a new :apple:macbook pro 15inch 2.53ghz with GeForce 9400M video card. But i still not so sure if it is good for gaming(WINDOWS 7). Can anyone who has a macbook pro with GeForce 9400M tell me if they have ever been to
    and tested there system to see how well they can run the new games (battlefield bc2, CoD MW2) and if you can could you post a screen shot. Just trying to get all the info I can before I buy.

    Well the 9400m is a much better GPU then the intel integrated GPU but with that said, I don't think that GPU is a good fit for your needs. If you're planning on playing games I'm going to say the 9600 GPU would be a better fit.

    You will be able to install win7 fine. As for gaming, you'll be able to play those games just not on max settings. Most probably at medium settings.

    i have that GPU, i figured out under xp sp3 that its actually underclock to 350mhz when the normal clock speed is 450mhz. so go ahead and use some overclocking tool and put it up to 450mhz you'll notice a difference. i can run burnout paradise at 1440 x 1100 smoothly on my 1080p monitor i can run at 1080p but wont be as smooth. Also run Prototype very well but at low res-1024 x 768. I tried need for speed shift but completely unplayable:(. I dont have any other games installed right now but its decent for my needs :D i suggest for a 9600 much better but your just gonna do games, might as well buy a pc:eek: you get much better graphics for the price
