Gaming on Mac Mini?

I have recently sold my XBox 360, and want to use my mac mini to play games, such as far cry (2) or pro evolution soccer etc. (im just a casual gamer)
I'm slightly concerned though, because I know the mini uses integrated graphics which aren't great, so I was wondering what you think please? I use OS X, but I have a Vista partition (try to avoid, because i love os x) which will probably be the one used for the games, because there's more choice for me.
I will include specs below,
Thanks very much for your time,

Well, you can give it a go... it's not gonna compare to your old 360 though!
Minimum Pro Evo requirements. The recommended ones are a LOT higher. It also mentions a demo - you could give that a go and see how it runs before buying it.
