    so i got my new macbook pro 2.4(265vcard)yesterday..i did install parallels and has only microsoft office on it(what i need from windows) and the other thing i need is video games..noticed that parallels work CRAPPY with games..

    Will bootcamp be any better?
    does it have any bugs as im JUST going to use it with games?
    does it support the latest DirectX version??

    thanks!

    Yes, Boot Camp will be much better, as you're running natively. It will support up to DirectX 9, and 10 if you have a compatible video card. Using Boot Camp will be like you're using Windows on a regular PC.

    It will support everything from a regular PC, as long as you have the hardware that's required by the app. Again, Boot Camp is running Windows EXACTLY like a regular PC, in fact, one can ditch OS X, and just use Windows on their Intel based Macintosh.

    What games do you have to run?

    Yep if an equivalent PC computer could play the game, your Mac can under bootcamp. :)
