I've got a Late 2006 iMac 5,2 with the Intel GMA 950 and I've been taking a look around for games and I saw Deathspank on the app store. Can anyone confirm that it will work with my graphics card? If not, could anyone point me in the direction of some good games? A relative of mine bought me a $100 itunes card and I still havent used any of it!

confirmed working on 950:
Osmos, And Yet It Moves, Machinarium, Baphomet's Curse,
Cthulhu Saves the World, Eschalon Books I & II, Avernum Series, Raptor, Bontanicula, Samorost 2,
50/50 chance: Sword of Fargoal, Avadon: The Black Fortress, Gratious Space Battles, Sword & Sworcery, Sid Meier's Pirates.
These games are def. worth to check into.
You should always ask the devs, directly, if the 950 is not explicity mentioned.
These are also mostly RPG, Strategy etc. since they don't require so much graphic power.
On Bootcamp (under Windows XP) pretty much any game until 2004/5 can be run the 950. Even the earlier Versions of HalfLife 2 (PC) ran quite well. Then they updated the graphics engine which mess up the colour balance on the 950. Also FarCry was very well playable But these games also pretty much represent the pinnacle of what is possible this Itegrated Graphics Chip.
And if you still need more games check out www.gog.com (formerly Good OLD Games) they recently opened up a nice section for Mac Games (mostly running Emulations of old great Dos Games which should run nicely on the 950).
