    Interested in the 27-inch, how much of a difference between the 2.9 and 3.2Ghz?

    Will someone really notice the difference?

    I'm not really into gaming(thats why xbox is for)... Basic workload, emails, videos, internet... I mean of course, I would like to put games on here... SimCity for 2013 looks promising(brings back my childhood).

    By the workload you are describing, you won't notice a huge difference from the CPU. However, the 2.9ghz 27" iMac has a GTX 660m with 512mb of video ram which might be a bit weak for gaming at 2560x1440. The 27" model with the 3.2ghz i5 comes with a better GPU which will help out in the gaming department for sure.

    Good luck!
