I purchased a second had iMac last week and so far no problems until i installed the only game i play on the PC (Football Manager 2014), all other games i play on the XBOX, not a very highly graphical game and i would not have though very demanding but its very jittery when viewing a football match and the drive seems to be running a lot.
if i put the game in windowed mode and make it smaller that helps but with a 27in monitor thats not what i wanted to do.
I have not yet tried any other games on the Mac but i was wondering if I should have got a faster machine ???

I am thinking of reinstalling SNOW LEOPARD and restarting the machine but i am not sure if that will help ????
Is there any advice to get it running at top speed or any apps i should get to help me identify the problem area ???
