    well I have one of the new I macs with the 8800gt and I just wanted to put down the specs for some stress test I have put it though.

    My I mac Is the 24" model with 2.8ghz processor, 4gbs of ram and a 500gb hd.

    My vista score average was a 5.6

    ram 5.9

    hd 5.9

    graphics 5.8

    processor 5.6

    Then I ran HL 2 and was able to get 203 fps with the recommend settings for the hardware. I get steady 60fps with everything turned all the way up.

    with counter-strike source I get 107.85 fps with everything turn all the way up.

    with team fortress 2 I got about 30-60 fps with everything all the way up, but some of that problem is that I am using my wireless card so if you have faster internet you should get more fps with an ethernet connection.

    enjoy :cool:

    first no-one can make anything up of your scores unless you give averages first. Second their is no such thing as a 28" imac model. Third -_- for running windhoes on it...

    I want a 28" model!!
    Anyway, I'll send in some reports once I get my hands on a SP2 cd. Mine's SP0 ;). I've got a 24" iMac w/ 2.4ghz, 2gb ram (soon to be 4), and the ATI 2600.

    no I am not dumb, but team Forrest 2 is completely online if the internet lags so does the video.

    I mac?

    Seriously?

    I mean usually I could care less but that's just terrible. That's probably worse than when people say MAC (i.e.; "I love my new MAC").

    team fortress 2 is a completely online game, thus yes internet connection does matter.

    Yeah, that install was just for spyware.

    Faster Internet connections only get you faster updates of everyone else's position.

    oh and technically iMac and Imac is not a spelling error, its just a "being a tool error"

    sorry i do have a 24-inch model. yes I have tested it many times internet connections do matter when you play online, there is no way in the world my wireless card can out do a gigabit ethernet. ( it won't make much of a difference but it still makes a difference )

    In my experience, wireless does tend to create more 'lag' then ethernet.

    Having a faster connected does not equal better FPS in any case.

    And 28" would be amazing, lol liquid sex
