New iMac 27, GTX660M vs GTX675MX

Hi, I am considering the new iMac 27

I don't play games on my iMac, and do not connect additional monitor.

Just normal use with Aperture being the most resource hungry program.

Will there be big difference between the GTX660M (512MB) and GTX675MX (1GB) graphics card to my normal use?

If you don't play games, then no need to trade up. The 660M will be more than adequate.

No advantage in rendering images when applying changes?

There would be some difference, if you plan on using the GPGPU, but definitely not the 200$ one.

thinking the same thing...
i'm pretty sure for my uses (some 1080p video editing, and fairly light work in aperture), the 660m will be good enough.

hope so anyway

The other variables is the small CPU bump as well... But still hard to determine if the small bumps in both justify the extra $200
