    i hate to tell you this. but gaming in parallels is CRAP! it does not work. in cod2 i will get 3-5fps. in RUNE, which was made about 6years ago i get 17-19fps.

    its really not that good yet. hardly worth the effort.

    FSX could bring any computer to it's knees, much less a VM like Parallels. While I haven't tried it yet, I would figure only games like Warcraft 3 could probably run well on it. Don't expect any recent games, specially those that require DirectX to run well.
