    Ok, so we have been running some form of XP on our iMacs, and this goes out to he gamers in the bunch.

    Has anyone who was using a PC before intels gave up their gaming rig for good?
    AKA, you use bootcamp now instead of a seperate computer all together?

    If so, how is it working out for you.

    For me:
    I find my 17 intel iMac to perform pretty good to where I dont really use or miss my AMD system at all.

    I gave up my gaming rig and my old mac in excahnge for an intel iMac running boot camp. I had P4 3.2Ghz with 1 gig of RAM, 2 74 Gig 10,000 RPM Raptors in raid 1 and a Radeon 9800 Pro. The iMac runs faster! I know that my gaming rig wasn't state of the art by todays standards but it ran all the games I play well. I ran two benchmark programs PC Mark and 3D Mark and both tests saw the iMac demolish the PC that I replaced The only thing faster on my old PC was the two 10,000 RPM Raptors in Raid 1. But over all the iMac has been great. I am really impressed by it's performance. I mainly play battlefield 1 and 2 and Call of Duty 2. But I have played half life 2 and doom 3 as well.
