Improving Gameplay on a Mac

unfortunately i have mac. I am using "parallels 6" which is a virtual machine so i can run my windows xp. My macbook pro has specs:
8gb ram
2.2 ghz intel core i7
with amd radeon hd 6750m.

i can't really play on high resolution or with high detail and even with low settings it usually freezes up when i interact with people or use dialogue.

I know im gonna get **** for having a mac but I was wondering if anyone could help or offer a better option for doing this on my mac.

Props to you for trying. I hope you find a fix cos my mate has a mac and won't play unless I can tell him it will work well. Sad they didn't release it for macs...even though macs suck :P good luck

you gotta use bootcamp instead of parallels.
