    iF your planning to play games using XP on a mac mini, it isnt that good of an idea. Your best bet for gaming is stuff like a Macbook Pro, iMac, and Mac Pro, and maybe even a black Macbook. GFX is great across all macs, I'm 99% sure the only Mac you can change GFX cards in is the Mac Pro

    If you're interested, i can walk you through installing OSX on your current PC...I can't guarantee that there are all the "drivers" for the hardware you have but the basics of it will work out fine. It will pretty much give you a taste of what to expect in a Mac.

    iv managed to get OSX on my pc all is working well, this is making me want a real mac more and more. Iv been looking at the mac pro on the apple website but the 1800 price tag scares the crap out of me lol.

    Yeah i would want to game on it too, after abit of investigation the mac mini would be a waste of money for me....


    cheers guys.

    Apples are really expensive for what it is. I have a Macbook and it's brilliant. I only use it for work and internet though coz I dont wanna install Windows on it and play games. If you wanna do that, you really should choose the one of the Macbook Pros. I think that will be your best bet as you did say you are skint and you wanna game so...

    The black Macbook might... be ok though.

    Well,anyways they are BETTER that PCs,but I will suggest you to take a MacBook...

    MacBook pro will play Crysys okay. I'd go with a higher end iMac, or a mid range mac pro if you want to game on it. The mini's are basically macbooks without the screen.
