    Hello everyone,
    I am sorry if I am making a new post about something that has already been posted. I tried looking for similar threads but I could not find one.

    So today I went to the apple store. I had in mind buying the 27" i3 iMac. The 21.5 iMac was also an option and it was right beside the 27" iMac. The screen was not small, it was ok. On the other hand, the 27" iMac seemed too big, the text was small and with the small keyboard I did not know how to make the font bigger, it did not hurt my eyes, it made me feel weird,although I was really tired at that time, so maybe it was because of that.

    So I wanted to upgrade from my current 2007 intel white iMac to the new iMac to play some games in Windows. In my view gaming on the 27 i3 would be worse than in the high end 21.5 because the video card has to make more effort because of the higher resolution in the 27" display. Am I right?
    Could anyone show me how games run in the high end 21.5 iMac? Or at least tell me if they run well (30+fps on high settings) And please do not show me as an example Crysis, I do not like the game and it is old.

    Thanks in advance. :eek:

    Well then you would be wrong.

    Actually, a lot of people on this forum tend to blow the 2560x1440 resolution out of proportion, I don't know why either.

    As far as gaming benchmarks, there's lots of threads on this already, just have a quick look around.

    There are threads, but for the higher end card.
    Maybe I can't see them, point some for me please.

    So I searched, but the threads were not responded.
    Anyone has an answer?

    Sorry, I thought you wanted benchmarks for the best available gaming option in the iMac line.

    here are some benchmarks of the gpu in the 21.5 inch iMac, although they're on the windows side of things.
