The only thing is I don't have sound -- too lazy to find the correct driver hehe.
I also don't know how to boot right back into OSX since Windows likes to be the first booted OS.

Open the Control Panel
Click on Startup Disk
Change the setting; this item will only appear if the Boot Camp drivers are installed.

Or you can also restart the computer with the X or Option keys held down. Select the Mac OS X system, push the button with the straight arrow, and change the startup disk from System Preferences.

When I hold down x all I see is windows 7. No osx.

I need to switch back to osx to do homework =/

There's a couple of things you can do:

1) Left click the Boot Camp icon in your notification tray and select "Restart to Mac OS X"
2) Left click the Boot Camp icon in your notification tray and select Boot Camp Control Panel and set the startup disk to Mac OS X and restart
3) Hold alt as soon as the screen turns white and you should see a boot menu.

Thanks. I got it.

Now I have a question. I made the bootcamp partition way too small (35GB) how can I extend that volume through osx?

Oh good!

That's a tricky one. Whatever you do don't try and actually expand the partition because it can screw your drive as it has two partitioning schemes on it.

You'll have to either remove it, create a larger partition, and install it again. Or, you'll have to clone the partition with software like Carbon Copy Cloner, and then delete and create a larger partition, and then clone it back on. It's easy to do from Mac OS X. The software requires you download some NTFS thingy for it to work, but it does the job.

Looks like when I get a chance, I'll redo bootcamp.

I'll probably allocate at least 60gb this time.

In regards to how it performs in windows, way better than I thought. I average anywhere from 80-120 fps with the cfg posted in this thread.

I'm pretty pleased. It seems I have some sort of a balance between battery life and gaming uses.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of Windows but when it comes to gaming, sometimes you've just got to put down your Apple and go through the Window!
