Alexander in Brazil wanted to know about PC gaming in Boot Camp on a Mac, and how to change the middle-click button option so it doesn't bring up the Dashboard in OS X. Windows games play pretty well, but you have to take in account the Mac hardware. It's not up to what a good PC gaming rig would be.
