    Hi Guys,

    I couldn't find a definitive answer on this, but I was looking into getting an Imac for playing SC2 decently. Would an the new 21.5 I3 running on its native resolution be better than an I7 running on its native resolution? And if I were to get the I7 refurb and bump it down to 1920x1080 would it still look good? And Lastly, would I really see a strong real-life difference between the i5 27 and i7 27? This is considering running both on windows 7 with bootcamp. Thanks for the advice guys! :]
