    Hi Guys, I've been following the forums for quite a bit and thank you to everyone that has been advising for people to wait it out before jumping into buying and iMac. This will be my first apple computer purchase yay! Anyways, I was hoping to ask for some advice as to which iMac I should get? I will be doing some light photo editing, just picked up a dslr over the summer and have been getting into photography. Will probably either use aperture 3 to edit photos. I know that iMac's aren't made for gaming but I was hoping to get some starcraft 2 action on fairly high graphics settings and wait in anticipation for diablo 3 hopefully next year? Anyways, I was looking into either getting the 21.5 i5 for 1579.00 or the 27 i5 or i7 quad core. which would end up being 1899 or a whopping 2079.00. I'm looking to get the most bang for my buck. I know the 27" display is beautiful and with the 1gb 5750 gpu gaming will be a little more feasible. Hope you guys can give some helpful advice! Thanks!

    21.5" is just fine but the screen is amazing in the 27" so if money isn't the #1 concern, get what you really want
