    Hey i'll eventually be getting the 24" iMac, it's been my dream computer. And the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics, worries me. Is it enough?

    Here's what I would like to be able to do:

    Play basic flash/java games.
    Maybe WoW, idk never played it.
    Basic movie editing iMovie
    Maybe Final Cut Express.
    For now I definitely never see myself doing any 3d renderings, so i'm basically asking. IS the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics enough for me?

    Based on your description of expected use, I think you'll be fine. You won't have superb performance when working with video (may be slow) but perhaps upping the RAM could help balance that.

    will it be enough? overkill more like it.

    i have a 20inch 2.0ghz imac. the lowend, first aluminimum one.
    it has a ATI 2400 (128mb vram). im running another monitor (22inch, full 1680X1050 res) as well as my imac's 20 inch 1680X1050. dual screening it as it were.

    and i use final cut pro regularly. cutting DV footage is seemless. HDV on the otherhand lags a little, but is livable.

    your fine
