    I am thinking about buying a 21'5" iMac, the one with 4670 and 1 TB.

    I will use it for internet, photography, music...and gaming.

    I am not a 'hardcore' gamer but I like playing.

    I like playing games like Modern Warfare, Fallout 3, Oblivion, GTR 2, Mass Effect, Dragon Age...

    What about 4670 to play those games in HD?

    Anyone has tried some games with the 4670 iMac?

    If I play at HD Ready (1366x768) insteand of Full HD, what can I expect?

    I think that with the games that I've said and Wii, I will have no problem on gaming and iMac, but if not, I will have start searching for a PC.And I don't want it :(

    A 4670 on that screen should play games quite reasonably. It's the larger, 27" models that I'm concerned about, as they'll require a lot more GPU power to push their native resolution at a decent frame rate.

    It's great for me hear that but anyone has tried them?

    It seems that everybody is going for 27" iMac :p

    I have one and it did great with ETQW,BioShock Flatout2,Prey. Played everything at 1600x 1050. The 21.5 with the 4670 makes for a nice machine in my view.

    And do you have any problem like pixelations or bad quality or little game screen due to play at 1600 and not in Full HD?
