    Hi I have a '11 13 inch MacBook Pro. My specs are a 2.7 GHz Intel core i7 with 4 GB RAM, it was one of the standard models for sale in 2011. Recently I have become very interested in games like War Thunder and DayZ, I would like to know what I would need to do to play these games. I know about Bootcamp for running windows, Do I need to purchase anything to set up Bootcamp? And are there any upgrades I would need to do to make playing these games plausible.

    Thanks for the help!

    All you'll need to install Windows on your Mac is a spare CD, some blank disk space, and a copy of Windows to install from. You can open the Boot Camp Assistant on your computer and print out a step-by-step PDF guide, which can be useful to know what you're getting yourself into.

    You should check out the System Requirements for those games you're interested in running, and make sure they're friendly to integrated graphics (in your case, an Intel HD 3000).
