    Even tho the 8800 GTS isn't exactly what we have in the new iMac (at least from what I understand)it is close enough to give you a pretty good idea how big the differences are.

    And since some people say that the card we have is indeed the 8800M GTS then iMac is finally on the right move.
    And it if that is true then to give you more visible idea of how fast the card is simply check that link below to see that a SLI running 8600GT system will have only a marginally higher performance than this single 8800.
    Now that's some serious power.

    but I'm guessing games WILL be more playable on the newer imacs then mine :D
