2K hasn't responded to my help petition in over 3 days, and haven't even assigned it yet. I really need help! Thanks.

Actually, you need to contact Aspyr support[]. According to their BL2 FAQ your graphics card is supported. The one thing you didn't list though is what version of OS X you are using. If you're not using Lion or above, that may be your problem.

Ahhh. I'm on OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). I'm assuming I should get Lion?

If you're going to go Lion you might as well go Mountain Lion. I think you can jump straight from Snow Leopard.
