Where should I cut corners?
Got enough money to spend on either a maxed out 21.5 iMac, or a 27 inch with a few bumps...don't know what would be best to go with tho. With the 21.5 I would think the i7 and 16gb ram would be enough with most things, while also keeping the 650m from being too much of a bottleneck. I'd also have the fusion drive and prolly wouldn't fill it past the SSD section, so i'd have a nice peppy drive for everything to run on as well and make things like FCPX and games buttery smooth.
I could snag the 27 inch. I'd get more screen real estate, but i'd prolly have to leave the HDD at 7200rpm and the vid card at 675m. I would think gaming would still run at least as smoothly as the iMac 21.5, but I could be wrong. (never used an SSD and i'm not too familiar with vid card benchmarks) I'd get a tiny bit faster processor but nothing spectacular like dual to quad, or 4 core to 4 with HT. The ram i'd bump but prolly only to 16gb, since my content stays under 20 minute mark, and I don't think anything else would use past that mark. I use obscene amounts of efx but I don't really now how that taxes the system, before or after you render. (WoW has a 64bit version but I highly doubt that'd do it either)
I've never really had experience with SSDs, screens above 1080p, over 6gb of RAM or honestly video cards lol. I've always had integrated, or my last vid card I had was an AMD 3000 class I believe. Any ideas on what would work best?
