    I've been wondering for quite some time about the effectiveness of Bootcamp on Mac's as I'd like the best of both worlds.

    I am absolutely fascinated with Mac's and would love to be able to use Mac's OS as a primary source for my work and also have the ability to use Windows for other entertainment needs.

    With that said, will bootcamp perform as good or better if I customize my Mac Pro to cater to gaming/application needs for windows games (High end video cards, upgraded ram, etc)?

    Is that possible to enjoy both worlds on a well equipped Mac Pro?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    A Mac booted into Windows will perform just like any other computer of the same specifications booted into Windows.

    In before valid Mac Pro video card whiners. (I'm a card carrying member as well.)

    Wow, great. I'd really like to get rid of this PC then as it just takes up space and makes noise.

    I am running Vista under boot camp, it is awesome, very fast, probably faster than most PC desktop or laptop I know. My iMac and MBP is my best computer I ever had so far, no regret. I am enjoying the best of both world.

    I use the beautiful Leopard for most of my daily works. Once in a while I will miss Windows, so I will just run it for fun. I also dare to do all sort of experiment with my Vista now, since if I screwed it up, all I need to do it to delete the partition and create a new one again.
