Will this work? I am a gamer that wants to go Mack as I don't want Vista and XP is slowly going away and I think Apple products are better.

Yes it will run it easily. The 8600M GT is a decent card for gaming. I can run COD4 at 1680x1050(somewhere around there) on my 22" monitor at full graphics for everything and it plays it fine.

That is cool. I have given up on windows systems and want to switch to Mack even though it isn't really a gaming machine it seems to just work. I just can't give up FSX.

Would you say Half life is as demanding as Flight sim X? I believe the flight sim to be the most demanding program out there.
