hi, im thinking of getting a mac, but i'm not sure if there are any good games or applications for them, could someone help me find out whether i should switch, at the moment i play a decent amount of FPS, a few RPG's and the occasional strategy game.
any help in deciding would be great

my computer at the moment is a fairly good spec one as well, so what mac should i get instead. I have a budget of about $2000, may be a bit more depending on how much i sell my computer for.

SPEC:
i5 3.9 ghz - CPU
ati 5770 overclocked - GPU
2 Tb - hard drive
8 gb - Ram
22 inch monitor

Thanks

You haven't really given us any solid reasons why you want to switch or purchase a Macintosh.

They say windows is great for gaming and Macs are great for everything else. So with the same amount of money you could get a super powerful gaming computer or a somewhat powerful mac not tailored for gaming.

There are a number of porting solutions for frustrated mac gamers, but getting your favorite games can be a hassle.

I suggest getting a run-of-the-mill macbook and keep a windows machine for your gaming.
