    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,

    Manufacturer Apple Inc.
    Model Macmini2,1
    Total amount of system memory 1.97 GB RAM
    System type 32-bit operating system
    Number of processor cores 2
    64-bit capable Yes

    Display adapter type Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chipset Family
    Total available graphics memory 256 MB
    Dedicated graphics memory 0 MB
    Dedicated system memory 64 MB
    Shared system memory 192 MB
    Display adapter driver version
    Primary monitor resolution 1680x1050

    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.
