is there much of a difference between 2.4 and 2.8 when it comes
Probably not a huge difference. I think your video card and RAM are going to be a bigger factor.
Probably not....if you go by these benchmarks, it's a only 8 frames more, in favor of the 2.8. Not worth the extra cash, IMO especially if you are only seeking the extra horsepower for gaming.
Buy what you can afford. You won't be unhappy if you just buy what you can afford.
Those benchmarks just look at one older game, Halo. With modern games, the Radeon HD2600 will reach its limit before the 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo, so the 2.8 won't give any advantage.
I would expect Apple to upgrade the video card in the near future.
I friggin' hope so. I'm waiting until Macworld to get mine, just in case....
The iMac will never get a gaming Graphics Card so you can stop waiting for that If you want to play games then buy either a console, XPS or a Mac Pro.
I never said I wanted a "gaming Graphics card", although I would be ecstatic to have one in an iMac. Hell, at this point I'd rather have the 7600GT in there over the card that's in there now. FYI - the 7600GT was, and still is considered a "gaming Graphics card" and was in the last model iMac.
