    If you can find one, you can upgrade the CPU to a 2600s. You can upgrade the MXM graphics card too, this topic has some people who've done it with varying amounts of success.

    I have the exact same model iMac and the way I increase my gaming performance on Bootamp is by using MSI Afterburner to bring up my graphics card performance. This let's me achieve 6770M performance with no real cost.

    Here's a guide http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1142028&highlight=2011+imac+overclock
