    Just ordered the old refub 24" 3.0.6 from the apple store for £1149

    I understand its got a 8800GS into it. Whats this like for gaming ? under XP

    I've currently got a MBP with the 9600 and found it fine for gaming but my gaming PC with a 9800GTX does have more muscle.

    Whats the shortfalls of the 8800GS ?

    Thanks

    1149 pound sounds like a great deal!

    i have a imac 8800GS and it runs WoW at high resolution with no problem.

    my few complaint is that it becomes really hot when i game and that it is not silent (like i can hear a faint sound in a quiet room) :mad:

    other than that i love my imac ;)
