    Hey guys, that might sound odd at first but I am in a bit of a dilemma on making a decision.

    I play PC games and I LOVE mac os.... I have a macbook pro right now which I am selling.

    The reason I ask about Kanex is because if the new iMacs dont come with a great graphics card, I am thinking of buying the lower end imac and connecting my pc to it for the gaming aspect and using the imac for everything else I do.. "Logic, photoshop bla bla"

    I just dont want to be stuck at 720p and I cant find any real confirmation if I output my radeon 4870 with HDMI if I can choose a crazy res the imac screen support over the Kanex adapter.

    I am hoping to god the new iMacs come with a 58XX series card but ya know how that goes.. All I play is Team Fort 2 which should be out for mac soon...

    maybe I am asking this question to soon but thanks for any help

    Get a video card with DisplayPort for your PC and everything you need it DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort and you can run it at full 2560x1440
