    What problems are you speaking of? Have you read the threads by 8800 owners? It seems to me like all the early video display corruption issues were linked to the 2600.

    If you plan on playing games, the $200 for the 8800GT is the best money you will every spend, and you will get a certified card from Apple...

    YOU WILL HAVE NO ISSUES IN XP PLAYING GAMES.

    The only people having issues are those buying a MAC and putting a PC CARD in the second slot while keeping Apple's stock ATI card in there.

    APPLE WONT EVEN LET YOU ORDER A MACHINE THAT WAY FROM THEM... THEY OBVIOUSLY KNOW IT WON'T WORK OR THEY'D GLADLY TAKE YOUR MONEY

    So... get the $200 upgrade, cheaper than you could buy it aftermarket anyway, and it will work BEAUTIFULLY! :)

    Looks like a winner!

    My only remark would be downgrading the 500 to 320, and picking up an extra 500 for just about the same price (~119) from Newegg.

    Then you have two drives... one for Time Machine and one for boot!

    Don't forget that the wireless keyboard does not have a keypad.
