    I have a 13" mac book pro. i7 4gig ram with INTEL HD graphics 3000.

    so i installed dragon age and black ops(mac port) and they're really laggy.

    Now i installed blackops on my bootcamp windows 7 ultimate. And its still laggy...

    Next, i went onto "can you run it" and checked my stats for the games.

    Everything was a pass except my graphics card, but everything was WAY above the minimum requirements.

    SOMEONE please help me!! is my video card bugged or am i missing a driver or something??

    Thanks so much!

    You have a very, very poor performance GPU, which will NOT allow you to play the game. You need a dedicated GPU like found in the 15" and 17" MBPs.
    I could run COD: BO on my 2009 MBP with 9600M GT with acceptable parameters.

    Btw, the reason why the game is not running is explained in your screenshot (for which you don't need third party software, even in Windows):

    Yeah, it's the GPU. If it says your video card is subpar, then you will have issues. Try putting it on lower settings and see if that helps. There's nothing wrong with your computer.

    As for above post, no.

    It is NOT an amazing GPU, that is the point.

    Nope, what you see is what you get. There's no way to boost or improve a GPU's performance. Nor can you upgrade it.
