    My '27 iMac is fairly new not even a year old and I can play games on the Mac side not the windows side.

    I have spent days on this and found no way to fix it. I tried playing LoL and it told me my graphics suck too much and won't let me play. I updated the drivers, went to websites to download drivers and used the Mac snow leopard CD.

    I can give out additional information but for now I just want to say, I can't play any games, I don't know what to do so help me please

    You have literally told us nothing... There is no possible way we can help you.
    With the information you have provided, all I can say... "Well that's a shame".

    How can you not play games? what is happening when you launch a game? Which sites are you going to to download drivers?
    What is the problem!?

    i have just ried if i could play LOL , on my iMac core duo 1.83 with the old trusted x1600 GPU and indeed without setting up anything the game would just play under windows7
    and i get no notice i had a crappy GPU , so my guess is you are not using the right drivers for the GPU in your iMac

    Is your iMac the 2009 model or the 2010 model? Does it have a dual-core or quad-core processor? What graphics card does it have?

    The min. requirements for League of Legends are pretty low and your machine most definitely meets them. If we know what graphics card you have we can help you get the correct drivers.

    I'm confused, why would you use the OS X CD in Windows?

    Surely you need to download and install windows drivers for your windows install?

    There are drivers for Windows on the disc.

    Windows-version of games?

    As others have pointed out, we aren't given a whole lot to work with and as such I'm left with a speculative try:

    Have you installed the game(s) themselves, Windows-side?
