    I am trying to decide which iMac to buy? Either the Refurbished iMac 24-inch 2.8GHz or 24-inch the new 2.93GHz as I do not want an integrated video card.

    The memory can be easily upgraded on the 2.8, my question is which video card is better the ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO on the refurb or the NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 on the new iMac?

    My thinking for the cost difference, $600.00 that is better to go with the refurb.

    Go with the refurb model.

    The GT 120 is slightly quicker, but is not a good card.

    If you games, you'll want a refurb 8800 GS (which is the same as the GT 130), or the new ATI card, which is the best iMac video card.
