    Which Mac? What games?

    In general the default answer for a "modern" Mac should be that you should run Windows 7 Home Professional 64 bit version in Boot Camp for games.

    You pretty well have to do boot camp for gaming. Virtualization just doesn't cut it for demanding stuff. And vista is never the answer. I'd go with win 7, if i were you.

    Yup... BootCamp for sure
    Windows 7 is preferred, or you can get by with XP in some cases
    Skip Vista

    Would buying windows 7 home version and using boot camp on my i7 MBP be fine to play COD MW2 from windows 7 home version?
