I'd just go with the Mac. My friend has a windows emulator and he said its really slow and you can't do much.

You have a PowerMac Pro? Umm, there's no such thing. There's a PowerMac. And a Mac Pro. But not a PowerMac Pro.

Yes it does matter, because one can easily run Windows, and the other can't.

But, you said it's Intel, so you have a Mac Pro. But a dual core Mac Pro? There's no such thing....Seriously, what do you have?

Instead of an emulator, why not run Windows properly with Bootcamp?

Yes, BootCamp is free. It's tool that allows you to install Windows on your Mac. You can get it from Apple's website. You'll still need a copy of Windows XP SP2 or later though.

Except that the game is like 5 years old, which is almost ancient as far as gaming technology goes. I would seriously hope if could be ran at max settings with no stutter or artifacts.
