    as stated, specifically I want to run Sim City 4 on my Mac Book Pro

    2.66 intel i7
    8gb ram
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512mb
    OSx 10.6.4

    I checked the Aspyr Game Agent and it tells me it only supports
    GeForce2 MX
    Radeon 7500

    the game will run but its glitchy, and slow, and occasionally freezes

    so i know there are for PC but i cant any for the mac...

    Have you tried manually switching the graphics card and try the game on the different cards?

    You can use "gfxcardstatus" to change the cards.

    Sim City 4 was not Intel-native when first released. Try the patch from here.
