I have only found information on the 27" iMac and Battlefield 3. And my questions in, will battlefield 3 be playable on the 21,5" High end iMac? will it be playable on high settings or maybe even ultra? Anyone have any experiences?

Which 21.5" high end iMac?? 2009,2010,2011??
Well if you play on REALLY low res you can play high or ultra on a 2011. but if you play at 1080p you need low settings. lucky if you can through in a couple mediums.

The 2011. I wast thinking about getting it with 16gb ram, 2,7ghz i5 and 6770M with 512gb.

You think il will be that bad? People are playing BF3 on the 27" with ultra and 1080p with the 6790m 1gb, is it really that big of a difference?

Check out this link: http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-6770M.43955.0.html
At the bottom you see fps in games that GPU achieved
and then compare to this one: http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-6970M.43077.0.html
6970M has twice the performance, and has the benefit of the large VRAM.

I played the campaign at low settings, 1366x768 and I was very happy (on 2010 MBP). I am interested how good the graphics really are, I would like to play at full res and highest settings, but then I just wanted to see how the campaign is.
