    OK... I was looking at the system information on the Nvidia 8800GS and I was surprised to see that the video card is a PCI Express x1. Shouldn't it be a PCI Express x16?

    Is anyone else noticing this? (I'm not sure how to take a screen shot and post it here)

    I heard that the 8800GS in the iMac is actually a 8800GT underclocked to 8800GS speeds to keep down heat.

    BTW you can press command-shift-4 then drag a box over the part of the screen you want to capture.
