    Definately Boot Camp. Parellels emulates a virtual PC and doesn't use your Mac hardware natively so it will run slower.

    I second Boot Camp. Parallels actually emulates the video card; you're definately not going to get anything near the full potential of your graphics performance through it. I installed Boot Camp on my brother's MBP with the 128mb x1600 and Half-Life 2 runs great. Needless to say I'm jealous

    Yeah, Boot camp all the way... Parallels might be alright for 2D games, but anything better will require Windows running natively...

    FOR SURE boot camp, unless you have more than a gig of ram, then you might be able to try it, but Boot Camp for sure.
