    Hi, I'm curious if you can dock a MBP 2.93Ghz on an Enermax cooler with the New LED 24" ACD and game on the MBP.

    Would you get lag on the ACD, and could the MBP graphics Card handle it?
    (games like: BF2142 or COD4 Mac versions)
    Thanks

    I run CoD4 on 1440x900 with most settings/textures on high, no AA, no shadows. Runs great. The Windows version runs a bit faster....but..I'm too lazy to boot into Windows everytime.. considering the Mac version runs great as well. So yes.. the MBP graphics card can handle games. And the ACD won't lag.

    the Enermax is by far the best cooling pad i have ever used. and in my opinion there is no reason not to game on windows right now. Windows 7 is free so just download the 64-bit version and run it in bootcamp. it is going to far out perform the mac versions of the game.

    Ok, but I'm mainly going to be using the OSX side of the computer, so for ease of use i'll just use the Mac version of games.
    If i really want to game, then i'll just use my PS3.
    And plus i'd have to boot in and out of windows. and need Anti-virus software for both OSX and Windows.
