    I'm going to buy the 21'5" iMac / 1 TB / ATI 4670, as Apple's web says, "The ultimate all-in-one".

    I will use to everything : internet, music (I have 20K + songs on iTunes), photos ( I have more than songs), iWork (or Office)...and playing some games.

    I will like to play games like :

    -Team Fortress 2, L4D 2, Portal...(Valve games)
    -Civilization IV, Age of Empires 3, Starcarft 2...
    -Call of Duty (World at War, Modern Warfare)
    -Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Fallout 3, Oblivion...

    What do you think? Am I doing well? Or should I buy a PC + Mac Mini?

    If you're fine with low-med graphics, then iMac is good for you

    Well, first of all, it is an ultimate all-in-one, if not the best one out there. The reason they call it that is because you won't find another all-in-one as good/better than this iMac. And this isn't my opinion, this is coming from every single professional gadget reviewer(Cnet, Engadget, Gozmodo, etc).

    Second, yes, you'll be able to play those games, no problem. Most likely not on the highest settings, but if you boot into Windows, you should be good to go.

    If you're looking for high graphics, then you might be in the market for something more like a Mac Pro or just a home built PC.
