    I know the rule of thumb is for games use bootcamp

    now what about very small games that dont require much for minimum specs

    Intel Core Duo
    2 GB RAM
    256MB video card
    Pixel Shader 2.0 suppored video card



    my specs are in my signature

    It may run ok, I'd recommend trying parallels and see if the performance is acceptable.

    thanks now to make sure i understand when i set up parrelles i have to deticate RAM to it

    do i need to use 4GB of RAM

    2 for Windows 7's recommened and 2 for the game?

    or is 2GB when the game says 2GB its assuming thats for the game and the OS

    I'd give the VM 4gb and work from there, increasing/decreasing to hone in on the optimum setting.
