    Default All games close shortly after running. HELP!!

    Hi guys,

    Recently installed OS X Snow Leopard on my PC. Everything runs fine except for games. I've tried only a couple of games, but none seem to work. I've tried The Sims 3 (currently talking to EA Support to see if they can help) and Counter Strike Source (Steam). Both of which I legitimately own, meaning I shouldn't have any issues because of cracked versions or anything.

    Basically whenever I open a game (lets take sims 3 for example - which has a launcher) it will start the launcher without a problem, I've updated the game to the latest versions and I tried this before updating. In the launcher, in this case, there is a play button which starts the game. I press that, the Sims3 logo shows up in the dock, I get a windowed splash screen, after about 5-10 seconds the splash screen closes and the Sims3 logo disappears from the dock. After that, the game doesn't start.

    I have tried running the game directly from the .exe (on the mac this means editing where the application points to) and that does that same thing, just without the launcher at the start. Counter Strike Source, and any other games I try from Steam do the exact same thing too.

    I have no idea what's going on, as this honestly is my first time using a mac and I really got very little idea as to what to do.

    Can ANYONE HELP ME?! PLEASE!

    edit: this is my system info:
