I was considering buying the refurb i7 right now due to it being like it would be a nice way to save some money for a good price, but I wanted to just get some opinions. Basically, the machine will be used for Maya, Photoshop, After Effects, and the such. The only real gaming I plan on doing is WoW, Starcraft 2, and, in the future, Diablo 3 (maybe some other light gaming, but my PS3 and 360 pretty much take care of those needs). The comparable new machines I was looking at would be the i5 dual core and the i5 quad core and wanted to know if that video card will make the difference in the long run (though any game I would play, I well know that I won't be getting amazing performance at the native resolution with either card, but I don't mind lowering that if need be). I seen the bang for your buck guide, but from I know, geekbench doesn't measure GPU factors from the comments in that thread. And if it would really matter for what I would want it to do with it.
