    So I have an iMac which runs on Mac OS X 10.5.8. These are the specs

    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
    Memory: 4 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz

    NVIDIA GeForce 9400:
    Chipset Model: NVIDIA GeForce 9400
    VRAM (Total): 256 MB

    Would I be able to run The Orange Box on my computer? Specifically Team Fortress 2

    Thanks,
    -Will R.

    I currently run all the games for my wife via Boot Camp with Win7. However, I've heard that TF2 can run decently via Crossover Games (WINE). Not sure about the rest of the Orange Box though. I would just install a small Windows partition via Boot Camp. Bonus: You remember why you switched every time you have the use that wretched piece of s...oftware.

    It will run fine through boot camp.

    I play the Orange Box games on my Mac Mini (2.0GHz, 4GB RAM, nVidia 9400) and they play really well, especially Half Life 2 (aka the best game ever made)

    I agree, the specs are more than good enough. The wife is playing LFD2 on her 2.26 13" MBP with only 2 gig of ram and the same video card. Runs fine.
