    Hello

    Im using bootcamp on my iMac. Its actually weird. If I try to play some games, I always get pretty bad FPS.
    For example, in most CS (Counter-Strike) maps, I get like 40-20 FPS where it should be 100. Its impossible to play like this.

    Is there something I've done wrong, which drivers should I have or does anyone else have this kind of problem?

    Thanks in advance

    I've found the drivers that Apple provides to be pretty crappy. Are you using Boot Camp 2.0 or 2.1? If you're using Boot Camp 2.0, you should probably upgrade to 2.1 . It'll update some of your drivers.

    If you aren't satisfied with your sound drivers, you can download the Realtek High Definition Audio drivers from their website.

    Now to finally answer your question. You haven't mentioned whether you're using Windows XP or Vista. You have 2 options for XP, 1 for Vista. With XP you can either download the Boot Camp graphics driver from AMD's website, or you can use Mobility Modder(google it). With Vista, you'll have to use Mobility Modder.

    Thanks. Those AMD drivers worked. I'd tried to instal them before but didnt complete the installation, now it did. And all seems to be ok now. Thanks

    EDIT: Actaully, its helped alittle, yes, but when the game's "Nightvision" is turned on, it takes the FPS still to pretty low levels which is very bad. Its an old game, it shouldnt do that. Is there something else I can do?

    Thanks in advance
