Can I use the video in on my 27" iMac as a display for my PC?

    All the searching I've done has been fruitless thus far--I need to use my PC for a few more weeks to get school stuff finalized, but I'd like to put the iMac where the PC display currently is. Can I get some sort of VGA to Mac connector that would allow me to do this?

    Thanks as always.

    You need a graphics card with mini Display Port output and a mini Display Port cable to connect to the iMac.

    Why can't you install windows on your iMac (Boot Camp) and copy your data?

    For the amount I'll be using the PC after January 15th, I'm not sure the effort is worth it.

    However, I'll study on it some--I may go the bootcamp route so I have the option of gaming some here.

    Does bootcamp slow the performance of the computer?
