    I am wondering what games do you play native to OSX?

    I hope to game on Call Of Duty 2 and Battlefield 2142 and perhaps get into World Of Warcraft if it's available for Leopard?

    I play Tomb Raider Anniversary at 1920x1200 with anti-aliasing set on.

    It runs faultlessly and looks very nice !

    well since the question is going out to 3.06 users.. i can say i haven't gotten a game that I couldn't run yet...

    Right now I'm playing Tiger Woods, Call of duty 2 and EVE online all perfectly fine and at max settings.. it looks stunning on the 24''.

    cheers.

    The WoW client is universal binary, right? I only played it on my PC laptop (~20fps @ 1024x768, low detail) a while back; would be interesting to see how it runs on more recent hardware.

    Wicked, so it should have no problems with BF2142 and Test Drive Unlimited?

    You should have no problems whatsoever.

    I have an old single core PC 3ghz with a reasonable graphics card and that plays Test drive unlimited reasonably and BF2142 really well.

    Obviously the hardware in the new iMac would be like racing a leopard against a snail (My old PC)

    You just have to experiment with all the graphics settings.

    Thanks all.

    I plan on it being a workhorse but with space being an issue I won't have room for a gaming computer.

    Is bootcamp nice and stable on the iMacs these days or do they have problems?

    Im running Vista SP1 and its more stable than on my old PC.. You just have to make sure that you install bootcamp... install vista then install the 2.1 update... Then update to service pack 1 within vista (Something like that).... thats if you want to use vista.

    There are lots of walkthrough guides on the internet everywhere just google them :) plenty to choose from.

    Have fun!! :D

    Sounds alot, but once I have it I will have a damn good read, I am tempted to put Windows XP on a 20GB parition on my Macbook. I assume XP is much easier?
