    Not sure what you mean about the graphics cards.. the graphics in the 27" are better than what's in the 21" though.

    You can change the ram to 16gb on your own very easily. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1423 should still apply.

    You misunderstood CPU with GPU

    i5 and i7 have nothing to do with the GPU

    Err ... the 2400 and 2500 is processor type

    i5 - 2500S is 2.7Ghz with 65 Watt TDP --> hi-end iMac 21¨/base iMac 27¨
    i5 - 2400 is 3.1Ghz with 95 Watt TDP --> hi-end iMac 27¨

    It´s not graphic processor .. but the main processor
