    I'm looking to buy the new 21" Imac.

    I'll mostly be playing on it - at least to start with - but I would like a little bit of futureproofing.

    I'm only playing games like StarCraft 2, Witcher 2 and so on, but would like for once to be able to put settings on high :)

    1. How much for gaming will it help to take the better 21" inch? It has 2,7Ghz over 2,5Ghz and a Radeon 6770 over 6750. On diffenerent sites the 6770 shows to do around 20% better - but will I need that?

    2. If taking the better 21" - how much will it help to upgrade to the i7 core with 2,8 Ghz and multithread capabilty in games?

    Thanks :)

    1. It would help to have more graphics but you don't really need it.
    2. It would help if you want it "future proofed"
    over all if you want a computer future proofed go for the higher spec model
