My imac runs all the latest games great, with settings usually on high.BadRambo said:On my 20" iMac, I have played some games, albiet slow. Lower resolution and effects settings work OK, but what I would call real gaming quality...but that is not what an iMac does best.
Cheers -- have fun --
Yes, you are right -- but now that I have the Pro, the iMac has been relegated to non-intense graphic duty --- and once I get the Pro up to 2GB, it will be even better than it already is, especially running a PC 7800 card as it is now under XP. Running real nice.MacRumorUser said:My imac runs all the latest games great, with settings usually on high.
at 1280x720 or 1400x900
halflife 2 everything high except AA off - over 60fps
Prey - everything high except AA off- over 45fps
oblivion - everything high except AA off, draw distance about 50% - the game is smoother than my xbox 360
I assume it's because your imac is under-rammed. 512 mb, as opposed to 512k as in your sig is tooooooooo little to play these new games. maxed out to 2gb and gaming is not a problem at all.
I get better peformance from my imac 20" 2ghz, 2gb ram, 256mb X1600 than I did from my last gaming rig. A pentium 4, 3ghz, 1gb, 256 X800XT
