    Ok, guys...i am a convert. I recently purchased an iphone and i love it. I have turned to the dark side (previously a PC guy), or light side depending on your POV. Anyway, i am about to pick up the 2.4GHz 20inch imac. The only thing is:

    I would like to be able to play games like Bioshock, the Orange Box, etc. If i added 2 or 3 Gig of ram, could the new imac handle these games? Would i use a product like crossover, or boot camp to go into XP?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Thanks! Josh

    Bioshock runs fine under Bootcamp on my 20" with 2gb RAM. I was able to get 25-40 fps at medium quality settings, 10-20 fps with everything but AA maxed.

    I don't have an iMac but I don't think you'll have any problems. iMac's supposedly run games well.

    Here's a youtube video:

    The guy is running a better iMac than yours but I don't think it will make too much of a difference. You probably want to got with XP on Bootcamp like he did.

    yeah, thats perfect. i figure that it will still be able to crank out some decent graphics, and that was way above my expectations! Thanks!
