Dude, MAC™s are NOT for gaming. Most games won't even work, and if they do they are going to cost more. If your gonna get a gaming computer get an :alien:"Alienware":alien:

I have a iMac G5 1.8GHz and play Halo. The iMac handles game play fine, but I still can notice that the iMac can't keep up during some parts of the game intro. Example, a fraction of a second freezes during the game intro every 5 seconds, this was during the setting of the widescreen, you could also play in full screen (meaning the ratio setting like a square), which might not be as demanding on the iMac. But during game play, I didn't notice any slowdown or lag. There is nothing to worry.

Yeah. Gaming is not good for macs. Simply because the selection is mostly for PC. Macs are more for productive work.
