I have a MacBook Pro from January/February 2008, the old design, 2,2GHZ C2D, 2GB RAM, nVidia GeForce 8600M GT one, and I'm having some problems. At least I think I'm having some problems. The problems are that I don't get any 3D game to behave somewhat smooth. In full screen video the video gets choppy from time to time. About my computer and setup: I've upgraded to 4GB memory, and I put a WD 320GB drive in it. I use a 23" HP display as a main display (the MBP is always closed, so the 23" is the only active display). I've tried playing The Sims 3, Football Manager 2009, EVE Online and a couple of other games. Sims 3 doesn't even get smooth in its lowest graphic settings, but I guess it's a new game and all. Football Manager 2009 only works if I use the lowest graphic settings. EVE Online is ok, but the old graphics aren't really demanding...it's basically just empty space, lighting effects (as soon as they kick in it starts getting choppy) and ship/asteroid textures. My question is how it works for anyone else that has a similar MBP (early 2008). Are you able to play games? I've reached a point where I just don't bother anymore. By the way, as I'm writing this my GPU temperature is 80 degrees celsius. I only have Safari 4, Transmission and Mail running. Something doesn't feel right. Any ideas? Some benchmark tests I can do for Mac?
