Rome Total War runs beautifully. Damn I'm so happy!!!!!
I am still at work at the moment but will be home within an hour and will be linking to pictures I took showing three screens of the game running full tilt on our 17" iMac at work. We turned most of the graphics options high as well and it runs very nicely with only the 1GB of RAM and stock 128MB video card.
I am in the process of saving a few hundred more for a 20" of my own (to replace my "dated" G5) and then will continue to annoy people by posting screen shot after screen shot.
I tell you all, I am really, really happy. Let the game(s) begin!!!!
PS. Toga shot will follow as per request
