    I am considering getting a Mac Pro or iMac. I was wondering if they would make good gaming machines when compared to a PC. The new Mac Pro which is yet to be released will house two GPU's. Does that make it a true SLI machine? Are the GPU's found in Macs the same kind of GPU found in PC's? Will it be able to handle games that have intense graphics or would I just be betting off sticking to PC I regards to gaming? Thoughts?

    Can Macs be good gaming rigs? Absolutely.

    Will it be cheap? Nope.

    Can you do it cheaper with a Microsoft based PC? Yup.

    ...it really comes down to whether you want the best bang for your buck, or you don't mind spending the money for a Mac Pro (or iMac, or Macbook) and making sure to order it with the proper equipment to run games as they are intended. It's going to cost a lot of money, just like buying a BMW and wanting it to be a track monster...it's going to cost ya, but you're going to love it.

    In my opinion for home gaming (if you want computer and not console) is PC better (cheaper, easier to upgrade components, ...). For mobile gaming I prefer iOS to Android.

    Never rely on a Mac for any sort of serious gaming was the rule of thumb before, it is still now.
