    Well, I could be getting a mac in 13 days. So just out of curiosity, whats the best way to play PC games on a Mac? Ive never touched a mac in my life so I have no idea.

    Bootcamp? VMware? Anything else? Or does it even really matter?

    boot camp is free. best to play on low spec macs. have to restart mac to switch to OSX.

    WMvare (not sure $$ wise) and parallels cost money but are virtual windows that run teh windows OS. better for high spec macs. esay to switch between windos and osx
