So, i am a casual WoW player (as in only during the summer break) and so far i have no issue playing it on my 2.0gHz 2GB RAM Unibody macbook, apart from the fact that it gets quite hot and the fans kick in which eventually slightly slows performance. So, i was wondering, since in OSX the 9400m video card gets 256mb of shared memory, and that in bootcamp'ed windows it receives 512mb , would it make any difference to run WoW in windows? would this affect performance in any way , considering that it would have to be XP since i am currently running 10.5.8 and i believe that Leopard is unable to run Win 7 in bootcamp. And if there is any way to run it, anyone want to give a suggestion?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
QUOTE Thanks
