    I am a mac noob I have never used them exept at school.

    I just orderd a new imac 2.8ghz with 4gb ram and 8800GS, and i wanted to know if anyone has gotten bootcamp to run with a 8800GS?

    I've been reading alot of fourms and saw that I might have driver issues;what would I need to know to fix them?

    Also I would like to know your vista score if possible ( I heard that vista was giving ones to perfectly runnning machenes)

    One last thing, I have bought alot of steam games with my current pc and I was wanting to know, if steam ran fine on boot camp?

    thank you

    Your new iMac should be able to run Vista as well as, or better than a comparable Windows machine. As for the driver issue, in the event the Leopard disk contains an older driver for the 8800GS, you can go to the nVidia web site and download their latest Vista drivers. The nVidia driver sets include their Control Panel application as well.
