    Hey,

    I'm thinking of buying the 24" iMac 2.8GHz, but I don't know whether I should pay the extra to get the 8800 card.

    Is there much difference from the 2600 Pro card?

    Please reply fast as I can't wait to get to the store! :)

    Thanks,

    Jakob

    Its about twice as fast as the 2600. Worth the $150 IMO.

    Sorry, there is no but...

    molintorch short answer.... yes

    reminded me of Rev Lovejoy from the simpsons...

    I got the 8800 card in my iMac and its cool, though I've only played one game so far (Colin Mcrea Rally Mac).
