Will Boot Camp use Hardware Accelerated Graphics when running XP?

Can I run Battlefield2 if I'm running XP with Boot Camp instead of a virtual machine. (or is Boot Camp a virtual machine?)

Running Windows via Boot is like running Windows on any other machine. If you have a Mac that has a graphics card that can handle hardware accelerated graphics, than you will have that feature available in Windows via Boot Camp.

Yes, you can run Battlefield 2 on your iMac. And no, Boot Camp is not the virtual machine.

Battlefield 2 runs fine on my computer through bootcamp...

I can even set it to max graphics without it lagging. However, that just makes my computer way too hot so I usually run it at half graphics.
