    sorry if this is in the wrong thread, but i couldnt think of anywhere else it would fit!

    I am thinking of getting resident evil 4 for the pc since i'm taking a trip, and i was wondering if i used my macbook and bootcamp if it would run the game...here are the specs.

    PC Processor Type Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, AMD Athlon™

    PC Processor Speed 1.4GHz

    PC Operating System Windows 2000, Windows XP

    PC System Memory 256MB RAM

    PC Hard Drive Space 7GB

    PC Video 128MB DirectX 9.0-compatible ATI Radeon 9500/X300 series or higher or NVIDIA GeForce FX/6/7 series video card with Shader 2.0

    PC Sound Card DirectX 9.0-compatible sound card

    PC Drive Type and Speed DVD-ROM 4x

    PC Additional Requirements DirectX 9.0c

    thanks !

    p.s. i have the 2nd release black macbook...the one with 2Ghz intel core 2 duo

    Your MacBook essentially has a 32MB graphics card. As the requirement for RE4 is a 128MB card, it's doubtful that you'd be able to run it.

    It's unlikely it would run on your Macbook, and you probably shouldn't get it anyway because of how baldy they apparently screwed up the port. Look up a review for it.

    okay, thanks! well at least now i know that the game isnt very good and that the macbook only has 32 mb....

    that will at least give me a starting point in finding a game!

    thanks for the responses!

    My advice to you would be to buy a Nintendo GameCube, you should be able to pick up a 2nd hand one for really cheap. I'm in the UK and willing to accept £15 for mine, and its in top condition (by the way, I'm not trying to sell you mine, just using an example). Then you should be able pick up RE4 for really cheap 2nd hand. This way you get a console and the game for next to nothing. Resident Evil 4 is awesome on the GameCube, much better than the PC port and the PS2 versions.

    eh, under windows the GMA950 can be allocated up to 256 megs of memory, that said, its not very powerful, would be best to browse the budget titles in your local game store
