Has anyone tried running Fallout 3 on their iMac? Will it run on mine?

    Specs in sig.

    I know the 2600 can run the game, as F3's website says it's a supported card. However, I have a feeling my 1920x1200 res will KILL the game.

    Is there a chance I can run it with med-high settings at native res, AA OFF, and still get a good 25+ FPS?

    Thanks!

    I would imagine that you would be able to get 30 FPS at medim-high and a lower resolution (maybe just medium). I think anything at the native will be too choppy, unless you go low settings.

    is there a demo you can try and report back with?

    No demo. It runs fine on my build (See sig), but obviously it's a step or two above the iMac. The graphics aren't great, I wouldn't worry about it. You probably won't be running it at native resolution, but give it a shot.

    Just remember, to change video settings, it's in the launcher options window, NOT the game.

    Been playing it a lot since it came out.

    Are you using fraps or guessing? If the latter is true, fire up fraps and see how it's doing to give everyone a concrete idea of how it performs.
