It won't run them good, but it should run most games well. (Little grammar humour there, indulge me )

Your system will run most things you can throw at it extremely well.
On very taxing games you might have to move that slider down from 'ultimate' to 'great' detail.

Also remember that most games will run better under boot camp and windwos xp that under OSX, simply because most games aren't overly optimized for OSX.

Mmmm Quake 4 Quake 4 Quake 4... make sure you get the SMP patch (Multi Processor support) as it makes a noticeable difference. It even runs well on my lowly little 2.0 GHZ core duo with 512MB, although 2GB made things even better

Oh and did I mention Quake 4 is pretty good?

Must get some more games...
