    So guys with me getting the iMac 21.5 -inch Early 2013 tomorrow at Christmas Eve
    (dont tell my parents!) i'm a little worried if the specs are enough, if i should buy more RAM, if i should bootcamp etc etc.:confused:

    So i'm an "average" computer-gamer, playing games like: WoW, LoL, CS:GO and Garry's Mod. Then i'm thinking of bootcamping to play games like Battlefield 4, SMITE, Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord, Saints Row 4 and some FPS games on Steam like ARMA 2, Red Orchestra etc.

    I dont really like the Windows OS, i'm owning an iMac because of a reason (Great OS, Silent, Doesn't take so much space, Good looking and ofcourse GREAT quality:D). But i've realized that bootcamp may be a MUST if i want to play some great games i really want to play!:(

    So please, tell me what i shall do. Tell me what you think, your ideas and your tips!

    And please dont turn this into a thread (Build your own Gaming Rig vs Mac Gaming) because that's not the point of this thread!

    Good enough. You don't really need the hyper threading capabilities of the i7.

    I suggest a pure SSD setup though. Much faster and way more reliable.
