Problem is my job. Like i say, a lot of time traveling so never get to use my PS3 or 360 any more. This made me check out games available on mac.... not many eh?

So what i a was hoping is that someone could tell me in laymans terms, if i install windows vista or windows 7 on my 13" 2.2ghz intel core 2 duo, 2GB 1067MHz DDR3 how much of my general performance will be affected (while using it as a mac) and how realistically well i can expect to play games using the windows. I know upgrading my ram or whatever will help but if there is no need then obviously i wont.

Spare me any lectures about "a mac shouldnt be used windows" etc, its only for offline gaming to pass the time i spend bored to tears at work

The guy I bought my imac from was playing a couple of first-person-shooter games running XP SP3 in the bootcamp partition. He said it worked flawlessly with absolutely no lag. The machine is a 2.8G C2D with 2G DDR2 Ram.

Hope that helps.

P.S. The machine is partitioned with 50 gb dedicated to bootcamp and it must have been enough for Windows and a couple games.
