    Does anyone know if any of the Bungie or Epic Games work?

    Like um, the halo trilogy and Gears of war series?....

    Thanks,

    Joyous

    I almost for got... the machine that I am using is home made here are the specs:

    AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Quad-Core
    ASUS M4A78-E
    2 - EVGA GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 256-bit
    2 - OCZ Platinum 4GB
    2 - Seagate Barracuda 1TB (in addition to gaming, I do LOTS of multimedia work)
    ABS Tagan ITZ Series ITZ800-V2 800W
    Antec Performance One P180 Silver
    DVD burners
    LOTS of fans

    Which brings me to another question... is it a bad idea to game on a mac with AMD processors? I know with XP its great. But i dunno about a Mac. I do all my multimedia on my mac and game on my PC and I am trying to converge the two.

    Thanks again,

    Joyous

    Halo exists for OS X natively. Halo 2 can be played in Boot Camp.

    There is no Gears of War for OS X yet.

    You could always throw them in a Cider shell.

    natively meaning theres a Halo game built for the mac platfrom already

    boot camp is installing windows xp or vista on a seperate partition of your computer

    You don't have to give anything, actually; Aleph One is free, and so are all the Marathon games.
