    Hi,

    Understanding that Parallels now has DX9 support, is it possible to play games like COD4 through it? I'm playing through bootcamp now and it runs great but i'm sick of having to reboot whenever I want to play.
    I know there will be resource issues with Parallel's overheads etc. but think my system should be able to handle it, at least on low. I've tried getting it to run but get errors stating that the video card/drivers don't support dynamic textures, is there any alternative drivers I can run through Parallels to get it to run?

    Any/all advice is much appreciated, thanks.

    I think they are going to release COD4 for the Mac soon. :D I have a copy I got for Christmas, but haven't registered it yet, and only playing on single player mode. If COD4 for Mac comes out soon, I'll send it to my buddy and buy the Mac version for myself to put on my Mac Pro (whenever it gets here....)

    Stick with Boot Camp. Parallels is not designed for gaming.
