Using new iMac as monitor for PC?

I am wanting to get the new iMac but I still enjoy playing Battleifled 3 on my PC... is there a way I can use the new iMac as a monitor for my PC when I want to play that game?

Or is there a better option other than running bootcamp?

The three ways I have found to use an iMac as a second monitor

1) If you have a 2011 read http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3775

2) for a 2010 or 2009 read http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3924

3) For before 2009 you want http://www.screenrecycler.com/ScreenRecycler.html

Anyone know of others?
through the years: Apple ][ eventually upgraded to a //e (and it never really died), Centris 660AV, PowerMac 7600, Macbook, iPod 5G, eMac, a couple of aluminium iMacs, STILL hoping for a 2013 MP
