I have finally been convinced by the commercials, and have decided to get a Mac for gaming (mainly playing newer games, like Crysis). I want to be able to play it on very high settings, so what video card should I get with it? I can't wait to get my Mac, it seems so superior to PC in every way!

The new Mac Pro is now available with an nVidia 8800GT and if you opt for only one quad core CPU will cost you less than the original Mac Pro.

if you need a laptop, get the Macbook Pro 2.4GHz with 256MB VRAM, if you want a desktop, you might have to decide between the iMac ATI cards and the Mac Pro NVIDIA cards probably already know this but Mac OS X uses OpenGL, NOT DirectX as Windows does on PCs

2.2 GHZ 15.4" MBP with NVIDIA GeForce GT 8600 and 2GB RAM

8GB iPod Touch
