I've been a PC guy for years and sad to say was ignorant. recently i have seen the light and and i am doing some research before i buy a mac; im leaning towards the new i mac.

But one of the main things i would like to know is if it is best to us boot camp or parallel if i want to run my pc games on the computer and will the new macbooks be powerful enough to run games such as command and conquer 3?

Definitely Boot Camp for gaming. Parallels offers only basic 3D rendering, nowhere near what you need to run games.

Games work great on Macs via Boot Camp. My brother got the new iMac today and after installing Boot Camp we got Command and Conquer 3 up and running in no time
