System Requirements

Hello everyone,

I've been wanting to purchase Command and Conquer Generals for my Mac, but it exceeds my system requirements. I remember in the PC world that if you bought the software anyway it generally was a horrible pain to try to play. Here are the requirements and what I have.

1GHZ G4/G5
ATI 3D card
1.6G Disk Space

I Have:
ATI 3D card
Plenty of disk pace

Basically, are Mac's like PC's in terms of their requirements? (IE: Literally a 1GHZ is the absolute lowest possible even with extra ram).
QUOTE Thanks

I think you should be fine, coz u have plenty ram. BUT, graphics should be good. My C&C lags on heavy rendering. You can always try the demo and see if that works fine, before buying the game.
