It seems the can you run it web site isn't working for some reason so I was wondering what would my macbook pro's NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT be able to run? For reference I have the new 2.4ghz mac with 2 gigs of ram running xp.

I have limited space since i did a small partition. Can I install games to my 320gig external HDD if I install something like bioshock or mas effect, that is if I can even run it well lol.
