1. Where do I look on the computer for a list of these specs?

2. These are the specs of a specific game Im looking at, can I run it do you think?

Wouldn't be so quick to say that specific game will work.

Hardware wise, if by "I got a few months ago" means you bought a new Mac and not some used one, then yes your machine is well above the hardware requirements to run the game.

However, since that game was designed for OS X 10.2 and you are running either 10.5 or 10.6 now, you need to check to see if that game's forum, tell us what the specific name of the game is, or use google on your own to determine if that old game will still run (or they have had patches for it) in the new OS.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Thanks for the help. I bought it new in April. The game I am asking about is Command and Conquer Generals deluxe. Do you think it will work properly on this computer?
