    There has been a lot of discussion about the two graphics cards available on the iMac. I've been trying to decide between the 20" and the 24". I already have a 24" monitor and would run dual monitors. Is one graphics card better than the other for this situation?

    I would also like to know.

    Also, if I never play games, would I regret not upgrading the graphics card in the 24"?

    I run the Dell 2005FPW as my 2nd screen on the (now obsolete! :p) older 20" iMac 2.0 and it's fine. I have the 256 MB card.

    The 7600 does not outperform the x1600 by much. Very little. Apple benchmarks are crap. I don't think you would regret it but hey, if you have the money, why not? :)
