Are we talking basic as in with the GeForce GT 120? I don't know how the card compares to others really, but IF it can handle MW then it should handle MW2 pretty well; most dual platform 360/PC releases have soft hardware requirements (my MP with the 8800 can handle pretty much any of those like Bioshock, Arkham Asylum, and Modern Warfare at max, 1920x1200, no AA).basic Mac Pro $2300 model(edu)
This is a good idea, I never thought of that. Can I just buy *any* workable 'PC' video card and plug it in, OS X ignores it and use the GT120 as the primary?No *ucking way with a GT 120.
Get yourself the ATI 4870 or Nvidia GTX 285.
(Only if your monitor has two ports of some kind, vga, dvi or hdmi)
Move your GT 120 to slot 2. Buy some kind of cheap card. Nvidia GTS 250 for around $100. Put that in the video card slot.
When using your mac, it gonna run the output though your GT 120. When using your Windows 7 under bootcamp, it will run the GTS 250. Make sure to make your GT 120 into a physx card.
The 120 GT is the equivalent to a 9500 GT. Not really a gaming card.
So I think you will be lucky to play MW at medium settings at that resolution.
Defintely get a beefier video card. If you can flash a generic 4870 that would be the cheapest way to go - what are those things running now, $150?
The 9600m GT might be able to run fun at lower resolution but he wants to play at 1920x1200.I play modern warfare 2 on my mbp at everything set to "extras" which is the highest you can get... the only thing I have set low is the anti aliasing.. and i play the game smoooooth
I dont get it no one else seems to find that mw2 has been optimised better than the original... it actualy plays better than the original on older hardware and at high settings... maybe its because im a video game artist that i realise this.. but surely others have eyes.... mmm
I got a mac umm here is some details.. Can anyone tell me if this could hold mw2
