I am thinking about buying a new iMac. I have two iMacs currently, Xerxes and Hokem. Xerxes: Core 2 Duo, 2.16 GHz, 3 GB Hokem: G5, 1.6 GHz, 1 GB I would replace Hokem and ship him to my parents on the continent (I'm in Ireland). I want as much memory as possible (i.e. 4 GB) but don't really care if the CPU is 2.x or slightly more than 2.x GHz. This means that both 20" iMacs seem appropriate and the only (costly) difference is the video card. Can anybody who knows something about video cards and games suggest whether the (presumably) better video card (the 2600 Pro) is worth the money? Or should I stick to the 2400 XT (and hence cheaper) iMac? I'm not playing games, but will play StarCraft II. I also run VMware and was wondering whether a better video card would dramatically help VMware's DirectX support. (I don't play Windows games, but would be interested in running DirectX because I find VM stuff fascinating.) Also, what's a good method to ship an iMac to somebody else? I still have the box. Do I call UPS or something?
