    I'm considering dumping my PC completely, as it's not been on in about 3 weeks - I've been using my iMac in the intervening time. My PC is loaded with an 8800GTX which is still pretty reasonable. I see Apple have just launched a new iMac with an 8800GS card in it. How does that compare to the 8800GTX? Does anyone have any benchmarks?

    I know that the 8800GTX will be faster, but by how much? TBH now we have a baby, the amount of gaming I do has fallen right off, and I'd prefer a smaller, cooler, more efficient setup (the PC is S939 X2 based).

    The 8800GS in the iMac is rumored to be a down clocked 8800GT, because the 8800GS only holds 384 ram and has a 192 bit interface. TO have 512 MB it must have a 256 bit interface which is great news.
    So the 8800GS in the iMac would be slightly better than a pc 8800GS.

    Benchmarks are available here:

    Note the iMac is tested against a 3.0GHz MP (4 core i guess) so it's holding pretty good up I think

    It's a stock 8800M GTS.
