    Hi im new and dont expect anything major but...

    At xmas i can get a 2.8ghz iMac with nvidia geforce 8800.....


    OR..

    I can get a 3.06ghz imac; which would cost me a bit extra

    (I will upgrade the ram separatly from 2gb to 4gb for $90(£45))

    Feel free to give me advise thanks.

    Save the $200 bucks and go for the the 2.8 with the Geforce upgrade. You'll probably notice more of a difference in your bank account then in your processing performance (unless you're related to that guy who thought nothing of spending 23k on a souped up Mac Pro the other day). I would consider paying the extra $50 to upgrade to a 500GB hard drive though. Installing a new hard drive in an iMac down the road is not for the faint of heart.
