    Hey
    After playing Nazi Zombies on my iPod Touch I now want to get a Xbox or use my iMac to buy Call of Duty 5 to play the Nazi Zombie levels. :)
    Here's the hardware overview of my iMac
    Will Call of Duty play fine on it or would I be better off getting an Xbox?
    Thanks!

    You listed all the least important stuff besides the CPU, whats your GPU?

    Well I have the same iMac and it works great for some games. Even crysis plays amazing on medium settings. (AA AF off though) But everything will be playable

    Yeah WaW would work on that... but why not buy mw1 instead of WaW? Same game, cooler guns...

    I also have the same iMac (two of them in fact). Play is better on the XBox. It just flows better.

    WaW would definitely run on that, I played it on a Core 2 Duo 2.4 ghz, AT Radeon 2400 HD, and it ran fine at low-medium.

    Yup, go for it OP! You'll get all the benefits of PC gaming too.
