    Anyone else played any of the the source games on OSX? They're crashing quite frequently for me. Anyone else having issues?

    I can play l4d2 for about 10 mintues before it craps out in os x. Plays flawlessly in bootcamp. When it dies, it's usually just a frozen screen that forces a hard reset with the power button.

    Yes, the model with the 1gb 6750 is crashing on source games. Haven't had it happen on Civ 5 yet. I can actually play L4D2 better through parallels than I can the native OS X version:eek: That's with 2 cores and 4gb of memory dedicated to parallels though.

    I thought it was pretty cool, but kind of pathetic at the same time. I Worried about it being heat related at first, but it crashes at times when temps are only in the high 70s.
