Hello all, I am a noob on mac. I just recently got an Imac 24" 3.06ghz Intel core 2 duo, 2gb ram w/ a Geforce 8800gs. Im getting the hang of if. The only problem I am having is when I run games on parallels its tellin me my drivers for my vid card is out of date, when I try dling the new drivers on parallel its not letting me install it, and when I play Lineage 2 when it starts to load it tells me i need to turn on AGP.. I just want to know what to do to make it work, or if I should dl a different program ect.

You can't play games using parallels, at least not the high-end games like COD4, DMC4 etc...You simply don't have enough RAM, CPU power or GPU power/ram...Use bootcamp instead..This way can have a dualboot...so when you want to play a game, just restart your iMac, and select Vista (or XP) to boot...And play the games with full hardware performance, when you're done, just restart again and select Leopard to boot;)
