    In the past I've typically just done VMware, but now that I have a machine with reasonable power (and 1 TB of space :) ), I'd like to try Boot Camp on my new Mac.

    Question: I've seen past Macs struggle for a bit until Apple updates drivers. Considering there's a brand new card (the nVidia 8800), should I hold off before trying Boot Camp? I see there's a "2.1 update" for Windows XP (but it doesn't look like it updated the Boot Camp assistant, which I remember in the beta would create the driver disks).

    Your Leopard DVD install have all the drivers, and via software update you will get to the latest level available.

    I think that anything you'll do will be reversible, so why not use it now?
    If there is an update later why don't you see how it works now, and then wait if needed?

    Surely once you've installed windows it works just like windows on a "normal" PC?
    I.e. if your going to play games the first thing you do is download the latest nvidia drivers from nvidia.com making it irrelevant what apple do with their drivers regarding the GPU.
