Would Unreal Tournament 3 run well under Parallels and/or Fusion?

    Thinking about picking up a windows copy of the game, just for the level editor though. I play on the PS3, but I want to build maps.

    Can anyone tell me if this would work reasonably well (don't need 120 FPS for building...) under the following configuration:

    Early 2008 Mac Pro, 8 Core, 2.8 GHz
    4 GB Ram
    Geforce 8800GT
    Windows XP SP2 on either Parallels or Fusion

    Does this sound feasible, or should I forget about VMs and just stick with Boot Camp for this task?

    Well, I'm not sure about Unreal Tournament 3 but Unreal Tournament 2004 runs perfectly with Parallels.. The confirmation of this fact is here (info about 3D support from Parallels' officials).
    I recommend you to compare the games you want to run with that list of the games on their web-sites. If your game's system requirements are higher than go with Boot Camp and you will get PC-native performance with your nice Mac characteristics... :)
