    I currently have an iMac 20" (purchased Feb 2008), and whilst it is fantastic for doing almost everything I require, it falls a little short in the gaming category. I am planning on purchasing a Windows PC to suit my gaming needs, and would love to use the 1680x1050 resolution display my iMac has to offer.

    Is it possible to do this at all?

    No, as the iMac has no video input.

    You could use a capture card for USB or Firewire and maximise the window for the incoming window, but it may lag.
