There are a number of Windows emulators but I don't know which is best or which offers the proper video support. However, if you have an Intel based Mac then you can also run a dual boot and run OSX and Windows in different boot partitions.

You're better off dual booting Windows, assuming that you do have an Intel processor. Most emulators have very poor graphics (it's like running crysis on a virtual machine half the time).

I'd suggest getting bootcamp. If you use VMware fusion or parallels desktop you have limited directX(graphics) import. What you do is get bootcamp(I think it's free) and buy a copy of windows(xp,vista,7). And install it. It's what I use!

Lol, I have a mac computer and a windows computer.
Soon though, Ima dual-boot Windows and Mac on my MacbookPro.
Mac is better than Windows in everything except gaming.
And Windows pwns Mac in all things gaming.

BootCamp, yeah. It lets you dual boot, so you can have windows and mac osx on the same computer.

If you seriously have no other alternative to bootcamp, use the mac version of WINE as Dwood suggested.
Get Darwine here http://darwine.sourceforge.net/
After installing, you need to install msxml or text chat won't work.
Some textures will be also messed up.

Crossover games works fine too, but you have to pay for that.

PM me if you wish to use this method

How is he being helpful by bumping a dead thread and then posting advice someone already gave? He's revived about 8 threads already.

I understand this, but you yelling at him doesn't make you look any better.

One thing I have noticed about this community is that no one is polite to each other, it's just different that other forums I've been too. For instance I would say:

Could you please not post to an old thread?

instead of

GET OUT!

Regardless I see where you are coming from, so I'm going to ask him politely to stop:

Blue_Grunt_177, could you please not post on an older thread?

This way, you avoid Flame wars with that person and you don't look like bad.
