    I'm really not a gamer but I have just ordered a new i7 Macbook Pro with the GeForce 330M and i was wondering what games out there really show off its capabilities?

    What's out there right now, or is coming soon, that will make me go 'Wow' when I play it?

    Try running Dragon Age at high settings. That should give you the desired wow effect.

    Dragon Age: Origins, BioShock 2, Mass Effect 2.

    Crysis seems to be the de facto benchmark these days, but I wouldn't expect any low- to mid- range mainstream graphics processor to fully handle it, though I would expect it should be playable near medium settings on such a card by now.

    ...and then if you'd like to actually play Crysis, reduce those settings to med / low =P

    If you like shooters, Modern Warfare actually looks pretty nice when it's cranked, despite being a tad dated. Bioshock is also purty.

    Under Bootcamp I'd recommend Crysis, Warhead, GRID, Left4Dead 1 or 2, Team Fortress 2. All those games look superb on any settings. On high they'd be beautiful.

    Minesweeper... With a brand spankin' new MBP you should, in theory, be able to run it at low-mid range graphics, but make sure you dont burn out your graphics card trying to execute this behemoth of a game... Also Solitare... I spent about 3 years getting to the level cap in that one... Those were dark times.:)
