    So I got a 2ghz iMac a few months ago. First Mac, and it's amazing.
    I'm not a HUGE gamer, but I think I might want to load XP onto it. Just If I feel I want to play the Sims 2 or some other Microsoft-only game.
    Do you think it's a smart thing to do? I got a Mac so I could stray away from windows, but I would still like to play games.
    How much room does XP take, anyway? I have about 200gb on my Mac still because I have a external.
    Anyone got tips?

    its fine! its only Windows :eek:… if your scared about viruses and you dont game online just dont connect to the net.

    i have a 10GB partition and about 4 GB is free with a few apps installed. so if youre planning to game 20 to 30 GB should suffice.

    I'm not an online gamer, so the net will not be meeting up with my xp.
