I need advice on which one...

Alright, first off. I'm looking into a Macbook Pro. I've decided that much, just which one is the problem. I'll be using the computer to record music and play games.


My problem is price. Is it worth $450/$500 to get these


2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo

256mb NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics


instead of


2.2GHz Core 2 Duo

128mb NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics



I need to be able to run these games well. Not at full graphics by any means, just be able to run them, at some setting, without lag.


Call of Duty: United Offensive

Warcraft III

Unreal Tournament 2004

Counter-Strike: Source

Quake III


They are all pretty old games, so I think that the 128 mb graphics card will work, but will it?? Does anyone have any experience with gaming on these computers?


Thanks a bunch.

get the 256mb card, 128 is kinda the min to barely working with games like that.. on osx.

I would be using windows via bootcamp for the gaming.


Right now my computer which has integrated graphics runs all of those games except Call of Duty. So do you think that 128 wouldn't work with Call of Duty? I really don't play many other games than those, if any.
