    I just installed and OEM version of Windows XP SP2 on my iMac (late 2007 20" 2ghz).

    I'm trying to play Tabula Rasa, a MMORPG but the game will only run smoothly with low graphics settings. I tried updating my graphics drivers from the ATI website however the ATI Catalyst Control Center crashes when I try to launch it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on system settings, drivers, updates, tweaks etc. on getting the best graphics performance for gaming in Windows XP?

    im assuming you have the ATi HD2400xt in it like me... if graphics are as old as say halo, then try 1440x900 at lowest details, seriously if u wanted to do gaming the only card to get is the 8800 in the 24" iMac...

    yeah, i figured the dual core processor would make up for the weak graphics card. now i remember why i switched away from pc gaming and onto consoles

    Even the 8800 is a bit dated at this point (for an iMac).
