    Hi all,

    A question to all those who use VM software to run PC games in OS X.

    Given the speculation of a more powerful graphics card in the upcoming iMac, do you think it will be worthwhile gaming in OSX natively or with the use of a VM, rather than having to use bootcamp?

    I ask the question because I have a dual-boot system (late 2008 MBP) but I find that most games require I boot in windows for them to be playable. With the passage of time, I found that I stopped using OS X entirely, which is a shame given its a nice OS.

    Can anyone give me some hope that I will be able to game in OSX if the next iMac has a powerful enough graphics card, or should I just not bother? Thx!:)

    If you want to play PC games you should probably just build your own PC.

    VMs are next to useless for 3D games. Stick with bootcamp!
