    About to buy a base RiMac but I can afford one upgrade. What's goin to benefit more? I'm leaning towards GPU to drive all those pixels.

    It's goin to be used for photo work, gaming and general surfing/mail.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Probably, yes. It's the one you can't upgrade in the future. You'll probably want some ram too, but can do that later.

    It depends on how your going to use it, could you write some example of your regular activities ?

    I didn't think either the cpu or GPU could be upgraded later?

    CPU can be upgraded but if I were you I will avoid this option, it means removing everything inside, a hell of a job to do...
