Last year I talked a buddy of mine into getting a 12" Powerbook. He loves it, but has come to realize that it isn't a 3D gaming champ. He's not super computer literate, so I'm helping him spec out a dedicated gaming PC. Which made me think of this forum, since a very common topic is "how will games run on my *insert Mac model here*?" Many of the veterans or gamer types generally answer that they won't run all that great, you're better off getting a cheap PC for games. I'd just like to kick this idea out there on the forum and see what people think. What would you guys envision for a 2 computer setup - a Mac for productivity (Office, web work, maybe some Photoshop or the GIMP, iApplications etc), and a PC strictly for current 3D gaming. Could such a setup be configured so that one could get a couple years of use without major upgrades and without spending too much more than one might spend on a single, generously equipped machine of either platform? I'm guessing several of you have such a setup, so I'm curious. As for my friend, I think we're going to go with one of the newer Athlons; I'm still mulling over a video card. If all goes well, I might do the same for myself.
