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.

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