    The MBP with the 512mb Nvidia 330m. I'd really like to play Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2, CoD MW2. How well do these games run at native resolution?

    Thanks

    Bioshock 2 plays at 1920x1200 with almost all settings maxed... I backed off the post-processing and one other setting a bit. Not sure if it matters but I've got 8GB, an SSD, and win7 64-bit. Fans definitely need to be maxed out in OS X before booting windows to play these games.

    I played Dragon age in bootcamp @native res with settings either high or medium and was usually getting around 30fps. Yours will probably perform slightly better.

    Yes, it should run them, but it'll make your Mac hot! I'd play on a table so ventiltion can get underneath the laptop. Also play plugged into the charger, so your Mac doesn't sacrifice preformance for battery life. Oh, and turn the fans up somewhat if you have SMC fan control.

    Do those things and you'll be all good! :D
