    I'm running Windows XP on parallels and displaying it on my second monitor, so I DL'ed the new Tom Clancy: Hawx for windows.

    When I installed, it told me that I didn't not meet the games system requirements by not having 512MB ram, and a video card. My mac obviously has those requirements, as my signature shows but is there anyways to provide parallels more memory usage from OSX and allow it to be using the video card that comes standard with the intel iMac?


    Thanks for any help!

    Your best bet is to bypass Parallels altogether and use Boot Camp for gaming. You'll get much better performance, and in some cases 3D games won't work at all under virtual machines.
