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?

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.

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.
