    I'm doing some gaming on Mac OS X using Wine. But it is painfully slow compared to Windows 7 with the latest drivers. Is there any place with drivers for the latest iMacs for use in Mac OS X?

    Your drivers come directly from Apple and are already on your system. Any updates to them will be delivered via Software Update.

    Just use Windows 7 in Bootcamp for gaming.

    +1 buy a version of windows 7

    Wine is alright for word processing , spreadsheets and maybe photoshop CS2 !maybe some basic games and stuff like that but anything more demanding ...forget it
    even windows 7 starter will handle your games better on a atom n270 netbook ,
    then Wine will on a i7 iMac for example.

    I have Windows 7. I just don't like booting into it every time for a game of FIFA 11.

    You will never get great performance from wine for gaming. For fastest gaming you need to run windows under bootcamp.
