    Will I be able to play x plane 9 with this imac and if so at what settings? thanks. I have heard that x plane 10 will make more use of the i3 processor regarding graphics.

    Thanks Mackilroy, a good article, but it shows below in the graph legend that they are using a 21.5 inch imac 3.20ghz with a better graphics card....not the 21.5 inch imac base model with 3.06ghz with a less powerful graphics card. Any ideas on the 3.06hgz performance with x plane?

    As far as the CPU goes, not much difference. Between the 4670 and 5670, looking at benchmarks the 5670 is only about ten to fifteen percent faster, so again, not a HUGE difference.
