Bootcamp Advice for Steam

Hi AppleCore!

I have a MacBook Pro (late 2011) that I've upgraded over the years. I started playing games quite a bit on it, and to my surprise, it's actually quite capable. However, I use Steam, and a lot of the Steam games I play aren't made for Macs.

My question is, if I use bootcamp and load Windows 7 on my MacBook, will there be any downsides?

Thanks!
