    All,

    There's no question that the iMac's GPU has enough juice for todays games, but how do you think it will be in the next 2 years. Will it still have enough juice to run games at a resonable (medium settings) rate?

    Thanks all

    It uses the mobile PCI-E slot standard for it's graphics card, so you can upgrade it. Anyway, the 7600GT seems pretty solid. It's not a top end card, but it's better than 75% of the cards being sold to all computer users, so it should hold for some time. My 6600GT still does me well in my PC.

    I hear it is very inaccessible.

    That and finding a compatible graphics card will be nigh on impossible!

    over the years when you play games your quality settings would be slowly being set lower for newer games, the answer is , well, maby. its hard to tell how much technology will bring us in 2 years:p
