    Does parallells work for 3d games such as hl2, css, cod4? or do they only work on boot camp?

    I heard Fusion now supports DX9.1, but im not sure if that is true. Maybe it would be worth trying?

    You might want to have a look at CrossOver Games.

    Just pay special attention to what games it supports. Most of them are through Steam.

    I think parallels is enough for games! It has a big list. If you have more, use Bootcamp - no problems ))
