    You are short on Ram, and the GPU won't help you either...Does that model have the AMD GPU as well? Go to the little Apple symbol at the top right of your screen and click "About This Mac" Click on system report, then Graphics.

    That Integrated video card is going to choke both of those games hard.

    Given the age of these games, and requirements of a P4 and geforce 4 / geforce 8xxx I would be surprised if they didn't run really well in bootcamp.

    The single piece you have to care about is the GPU.
    The HD 3000 is not a great GPU for gaming. It can bear casual games and some "serious" games at low settings, but most AAA games will struggle on low too.
