Gaming on Macs?
So, I'm one of the few bloggers I know what still uses a Windows PC day-in and day-out. It's actually pretty old, still running Windows XP. It's not dead yet, and running reasonably well. I've got a separate PC that's pretty dedicated to gaming running Vista. Again, older, but after a fresh video card at Christmas, it's handling most of my titles just fine.
My question is, how good are Macs at handling top-end games? I know there's Steam support for Mac, but it seems like the selection is pretty limited. Is it viable to run Windows on a Mac and play games that way? Any feedback may sway me to switch...

I dont understand how computer architecture and software complement each other, but I have bootcamp installed for gaming, mostly super street fighter 4, a friend of mine has it too and his laptop is somewhat less powerful than mine, yet he can set the game quality higher than me with out getting frame drops, I have a 2010 i7 mbp and I have to set it to lowest to get an S rank(best framerate possible). Im not a graphic junkie with that game, since its not a graphical masterpiece, but still makes me wonder the reason behind this situation.
