Hello, I recently ordered an rMBP (mid 2012) with 2.7 GHz i7, 16 GB of ram and standard Flash memory. I will be using it a lot for Xcode (university work) but at the same time I thought why not do some "soft" gaming with it. However, I have been playing on a machine from mid 2005 (custom build) so my previous gaming experience with newer games such as D3 etc. has been horrible in MP, so in order to avoid this (since I dished out 2.5K for the new rMBP) I will be using Boot Camp. I have a question (several actually) 1. I will set 120GB of space aside for the boot camp +32GB of space for a windows OS, so this should be sufficient enough to run at least 5 to 8 games. My Q: Is it worth installing windows XP with minimum options (Custom installs such as no IE etc.) OR will this be stupid as ****, meaning I wont be able to take advantage of the rMBP's Hardware (such as the 16GB of ram, which is already too much unless I do video editing work etc.) And I know Windows XP only support directX 9.0c so 10/11 wont be accessible. But I am fine with that TBH, I am looking for smooth mid 60s FPS, I couldn't give a flying one about graphics, maybe medium would be a good setting on most games (old ones, I enjoy Killing Floor etc.) TL;DR Install windows XP or 7? WHY? Brief description please. Also I will avoid "wrapper" software such as wineskin etc. so i "never" have to bother with problems when installing new games/software. Cheers.
