Apple :: Difference Between Games Run In OSX Vs Games Run In Windows

May 1, 2010

I noticed that alot more games are available for mac now than there used to be so I was wondering if I play the same game in windows vs OSX will there be a difference?

I mainly install bootcamp and win 7 for games only on my macbook pro but maybe I wont do that this time if the games run just as good in OSX.

Apple :: Games For MAC

May 6, 2010

I don't have Win7 installed in a separate partition, and in Paralles I can barely play anything. I do have a desktop PC with a 2.8Ghz Quad and a 500$ Nvidia card that plays mostly anything, but that's not very portable, you can imagine.

So, I plan spending like a couple hours per week gaming, I do not play much and I think it sucks booting into Windows for 20 minutes gaming just to boot back into Mac OSX .... Besides, I hope I don't have to explain myself too much why I stay in OSX .. hopefully not on this forum..

I am mostly looking for action games or cars/simulations. Maybe some strategy games (tried Age of Empires III and it sucks, graphics are like 640x480 with bunch of errors, and the update didn't see the original game installed (demo)).

I have a MBP 2.66Ghz, Nvidia 9600GT 256MB.

Apple :: Macbook Pro For Games Design

Nov 11, 2009

I'm considering a Macbook Pro 15" or 17" for University. I'm studying Computer Games Design for 3 years, this includes Graphic Intensive work on Photoshop, Maya, 3DS Max and Importing models into Unreal Engine for level creation etc.

Do you think a Macbook Pro would be suitable for these tasks? Otherwise I'm going straight with a PC Laptop, as well over the majority of games are made on PC platforms. I was just interested in the MBP for the Battery life, OS X and all the little quality features it has.

Also would just like to know, how is the battery life on the MBP whilst running in Windows 7?

Dell :: What Games Can I Play?

Oct 5, 2009

I only use laptops for some wifi, docs and music but I thought it was time for a slight upgrade so I found a deal on a Studio 15 and bought it.

I would like to start playing some games, not serious, but just some fun games to pass the time.

Below is my config, I am not sure what kind of games it can handle.

The system ended up costing me $735 brand new at Dell with my discounts.

Take a look and let me know what I can play (games) on it ......

Dell :: What Games Can The 14z Handle

Jul 13, 2009

Thinking about getting the 14z and I know the 9400m isn't the best graphics card, but I noticed the memory is 1000mhz+ on the 14z which leads me to believe the 14z probably can handle games quite well since the 9400 uses that memory.

Can it handle Left 4 Dead or World in Conflict on medium well? Any users with experience or could tell me the frames per second they are getting would be awesome.

I really don't want to move up to the 15inch model and get the ATI 4570 which will suck up battery life and is bulkier.

Dell :: Which For Movies? Blu-ray But Not For Games

Mar 12, 2010

I am buying a Dell Inspiron 1545 with Intel core 2 P8700 processor rated at 2.53GHZ with 3MB of L2 cache, 4GB DDR2 800MHZ ram, 500GB hard drive rated at 5200RPM, ATI 4330 Radeon HD video card with 256MB of VRAM, and Sound blaster software enabled AUDIO Card.

Also, there are some other stuff like Bluetooth and bluray drive etc etc. It all comes with WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM WITH 64BIT. It has intel GM45 chipset which supports 1066 FSB and it also supports ddr 2 and ddr3....can i upgrade to ddr3 late on since intel states that it supports both?

Now the question, i m NOT going to play any GAMES on this laptop but i would watch alot of 1080P movies or u could say i would watch bluray movies. Is this laptop going to be sufficient enough to handle all high resolution videos? including YouTube's 1080P videos?....

AGAIN, i m not playing any GAMES on it....should i get this laptop or should i get studio 1558? since i m not playing any games, do u think i m jus gonna waste more money on studio

Dell :: LCD Not Scaling Up In Some Games?

Mar 16, 2010

I've got a quick question about Lord of the Rings Online on the 1645 (46701gb) if anyone else knows much about that. In most games, such as Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age, etc, when I'm playing at 720p,

the game scales up to fill the entire screen, and LOTRO *used* to do that, but it seems like after installing the 10.3 Preview ATI drivers, it refuses to do so anymore, even after uninstalling CCC/The ATI Drivers and reinstalling 10.2 or the latest driver released by Dell.

(Though come to think of it, I never did run Driversweeper..) Has anyone ever ran into these sorts of issues with games on the 1645? Cheers!

Dell :: Xps 1640 And Blizzard Games? (SC2 & D3)

May 25, 2009

I'm generally not much of a gamer, but will probably be playing alot of Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 when they come out. Of corse this is asking for speculation but how would the current card in the 1640 handle these games?

I realize that there is going to be a new vid card coming, but my current laptop recently died, and I need to buy a new one pretty soon.
