    Hello,

    Converting a client's small business to OSX...

    going to get an iMac from MacMall.com

    the only reason for XP is because of a specific industry based software....it's not processor intensive.

    So my computer is either going to be the stock base 20" iMac (2.4GHZ, 128MB vRam) or the older 24" iMac (2.4GHZ, 256 vRam) both computers will have 3GB's of Ram.

    My question is when running Parallels is the video ram that is really going to make a difference?

    No differences for your purposes. The base iMac has a slower video card, irrespective of the VRAM.
