    I have steam and I recently realized that left 4 Dead 1 & 2 are steamplay (runs on PC and MAC) but the mac system requirements are osx 10.6.

    My question is should I go and buy 10.6 or should I just get a new computer?

    My computer specs are:

    osx 10.5.8 (imac)
    Processor 2.66 Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory 2 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    Graphics card = ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro

    L4D(1&2) system requirements are:

    OS: MacOSX 10.6.4 or higher (Snow Leopard Graphics Update Required)
    Processor: Dual Core Intel Processor, 2GHz or better
    Video Card: ATI Radeon 2400 or higher/ NVDIA 8600M or higher

    Thats for any Input :apple:

    You have more than min system requirements. Spending your money on a new machine would be a complete waste imho.
    Upgrade to SL.

    Upgrade to 4GB RAM since the prices are rock bottom now, and then upgrade to Snow Leopard, you'll notice big differences.
