    I'm looking into buying the aforementioned iMac (21.5" 2.8 GHz i7 6770M), and would really like to be able to play Colin McRae: DiRT on it. Anybody know if this would work or not? I'm guessing that W7 64 bit would be the go, and I've seen that the i7 can create issues but it can easily be fixed.. but I'm unsure about the graphics card. Anyone know?

    So you reckon it's safe to assume that DiRT would work if DiRT 2 works?

    Yes, I assume you know it will need A Windows Bootcamp installation as DiRT 1 is PC only (DiRT 2 is PC and Mac).

    I do, will be trying Windows 7, 64-bit. Home edition will be fine for gaming purposes won't it? And I've looked up about solving the issue with the quad i7s so hopefully it'll all work fine.

    Looking forward to seeing DiRT on a current BTO iMac! I'm expecting to be able to run full, or near full settings. I've currently been playing on my 2.4 GHz C2D MBP, so I'm definitely looking forward to a serious bump in the graphics.

    Not to mention some good video editing of course!
