    Ghost Recon: It's a tactical FPS game. It should run very well, has a good online Mac community (through gameranger) and is network compatible with the PC version.

    Warcraft 3: RTS Game. Should run very well, cross platform compatible.

    Red Faction
    UT2003, 2004 (Maybe)
    Any of the Q3 based games should run. COD may run a bit slowly.

    http://www.insidemacgames.com might have some more suggestions.
    Grrrr, Arrrrghhh!!!

    Call of Duty - it's completely addictive with great multiplayer. United Offensive Add-on is coming out in a few days also. Servers - GameArena, Internode & GameSpace. Also runs pretty OK on lower spec machines.

    By Far, Tropico and Tropico 2 Pirates Cove is the best game I played on a Mac.
