    Hey everyone, just a quick question about the gaming performance with the new nVidia 330m on OSX vs Windows 7/XP. I know after lurking in the Forums for months that Windows 7 performs better when gaming but is it a considerable difference? can anyone share experiences of multi-platform games such as COD4/Left 4 Dead? regards, skate71290

    On my i7 MBP

    Starcraft II.
    Native resolution
    OSX - Medium-low
    Windows 7 - High-medium

    *Pretty much bumped all settings up one notch.

    Team Fortress II
    Native resolution
    OSX - Recommended settings
    Windows 7 - All maxed out

    *Settings were mostly high on OSX, still great graphics. If i tried to bump all settings up on OSX, it wasn't unplayable, but it would get slow in intense actions.
