    Lets say I was to purchase a Mac Mini and then installed bootcamp onto it, would I then be able to run al windows comaptiable games, and with the mac mini will the graphics look pixelated if I were to hook them up to a 42" LCD display?

    Bootcamp should already be on the Mac Mini, you'd just pop in your Windows Installation disc and it'll do some stuff, you can then choose to boot XP/Vista or Leopard on Startup. It will run just like a Windows PC, complete with all the crashing and laggyness. But to answer your question, yes you can run all Windows Compatible games, and you shouldn't get a fuzzy picture.

    the mac mini uses integrated graphics so it won't run high end games very well

    im using boot camp on my 20" imac and itr runs Crysis at full speed on medium with a reliatevly low resolution.

    but mac minis dont have that much power compared with an imac.

    you'd probably get a not vey demnading game running well, but Boot camp actualy boots into windows,so it runs at native speed.
