    I just ordered the brand new i5 iMac and a copy of Battle Field Bad Company 2 for the PC. I already have Windows 7 Corporate Version from a friend's company. Can anyone tell me how it will run and what settings to run it on. I am a first time gamer for my dad has not allowed me to own rated M games until now. I am planning on buying more games since I have 250 dollars of Gamestop gift cards and am not going to buy a console because I do not play very often, so how much should I partition 100GB because I am also going to have pagemaker and office installed.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ryan

    Medium across the board at 1680 x 1050 at the very least. Make sure to turn Bloom and HBAO off too.

    I'd be concerned about explosions. They'll drag your frame rate down the most and look terrible on Low effects settings.

    You'll need more than 800 shaders for that. It only really matters if you in the middle of an explosion that doesn't kill you.

    Medium settings across the board is a good place to start.

    Don't do non-native res on a LCD unless you have to. Low settings @ native resolution >>>>>>>>> higher settings @ lower than native resolution. Always.

    I wouldn't push it beyond 1920 x 1080 on the Mobility 5850.
