    It should be good to go if you bootcamp it. :)

    No, I'm wanting to know if the games I play are playable on it.

    I have a quad desktop with 8gb ram and it hardly plays on that and it's Crossfired with 2 GPUs. I'm just wanting to know if the MBP 2011's GPU can handle the game.

    So you think the AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1GB GDDR5 will work fine with it?

    Ah k, sorry. With that laptop, you'll probably be able to play every game you throw at it at some setting. You don't have anything to worry about.

    Yeah I know. But still.. It would be nice to have the ability for some gaming, instead of none.

    You can still play games it just wont be the experience you would expect for the amount of money you paid for the machine.

    Better than nothing. :)

    I hope that World of Warcraft will play at highest settings, which I'm sure it will.

    I play at 1920x1200 with 4xAA and get 60-120fps depending where I am. I get 50fps in Dal.

    Id Run 3dmark 06 on your desktop and see what it scores. These machines score about 10000.

    I had a 5850 and i5 laptop that couldn't play WoW on Ultra with 1080p. So I wouldn't expect for Ultra settings, but very High.

    I played oblivion long time ago with an athlon 3000+(so single core at about 2 ghz) 2 gb ram and an ati 1900xt max detail at 1024x768 ( my old 17") I don't know what kind of problem must have your gaming rig, but I should investigate, my 2 cents.
    P.s. Your mbp can run it at hi res and max settings, do not worry :)

    well, if you put all settings to ultra EXEPT shadows (low or medium) you can get 60fps on it. and SSD really helps on MMO's like wow. when there's a lot of people in a place (like dalaran) the hard drive can take a long time to load all of them, unlike the ssd.
    To sum up : you're ok :)

    my buddy has a quad core PC w/8GB of RAM (does heavy 3D modeling on C4D and AE) that he built a year or so ago (prolly a bit longer), and it wasn't the top of the line then, and it plays fine on that. I would think Oblivion would be fine.

    Your macs specs obviously exceed the requirements for the game...

    Anyways I was playing Oblivion on my 2007 MBP on medium settings. You'll be fine.

    You should be able to play this game and a lot of the new games. Your setup is sweet like mine.

    I know this is old so not sure if your still reading but ignore the above posters... if you play this in bootcamp on a windows OS you'll be able to max out all the settings with high frame-rates.

    in bootcamp you could play this on the highest settings with excellent fps. It's a ~4 year old game on a top of the line MBP..of course it will run ok lol

    You should be able to play everything on the highest settings. Unless you've crossfired two entry level cards on your desktop, that should be fine too.

    The 6750M is powerful enough to easily run any game originally designed for a X360, at native res, on high.

    I expect it will play Skyrim at high graphics settings too. Or at least medium. Certainly better than the XBox version.
