About 95% of mainstream gamers play at sub-optimal settings (i.e., console gamers, 30 FPS, low-medium settings, 720p). Gaming at high resolutions 1080p, 1440p, is really a preference of a niche segment of enthusiast gamers that prefer all the eye candy. All the gaming I've done so far has been on gaming consoles. I'm sure the iMac will be leaps and bounds over what I'm used to, in terms of gaming and visual quality. I'll gladly bump the resolution down a bit for improved performance. I wouldn't mind a little blurriness.
