    Hi Im new to the forum..
    Also new to macs , made the switch last december to mac mini server i7
    I just bought quake 4 , my first game on a mac.
    Im running it at ultra settings 1080p
    Flawless , can't believe how good it looks and plays.
    Im still stunning only 4gb ram but think of maxing it to 16gb now that the price has come down..
    is it worth it?

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    Why can't you believe it? Quake 4 is 7 years old...

    Upgrading to 16 GB of RAM probably isn't worth the money. Going to 8 GB you might notice marginal performance increase.

    I agree. 8GB is the sweet spot right now, but if you have the cash 16 is nice. How often do we say "I wish I had less RAM"?

    I liked Quake 4 as well. Good game. I had it for the Xbox 360 and Quake 4 came with Quake 2 (it think) in the box as well. I have since sold it. (something we cant due the future do to digital downloads :(

    Welcome to the boards and to Mac...I am a new Mac owner as well.

    I haven't played an fps game in years.
    My favorite was unreal tournament ,
    Mostly ctf.
    Quake 4 is new to me :)
    I went from an over clocked 30% socket A mobile CPU at 2.4 single core.
    The quad 2.7 ghz mini server sure blows my old system away.
    My mini has not frozen or crashed or anything since I got it last year..
