well. i have the standard imac that retails for 1400 in canada. it comes with 1gb of ram. i was wondering if i put 4gb of ram in my mac and run bootcamp would i be able to play some games? i played counter strike and battlefield on my laptop, also i would like to try company of heros and !crysis!


i was wondering, is there a difference in these ram sticks.
the kingston is 6 dollars more but i dont no if it gives u any benefit from buying the certified?

or

i also have a question on bootcamp. how many gb should i out on windows. at the start of bootcamp it asks how many gb you want to put on your mac/windows. should i divide it evenly? should i leave more on my mac? should i put more on my windows!?
im so lost!

What graphics card does the standard have?

Certified is a marketing ploy.

I have Windows Vista Basic on my MBP for gaming. It's on a 30GB partition. I'm currently using 22GB of it, with Counter-Strike Source, Day of Defeat Source, and Team Fortress 2 installed. I try to go native where ever I can.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

The Radeon 2400 isn't a great card. Adding more memory will not help it.

You might do ok with certain games, but I wouldn't like to play Crysis on it.
