    Question How well does 20" run games?
    I'm planning on buying an iMac 20" with upgraded graphics card someitme this week and I was just wondering how well it would run games. Also, what games specifically wouldn't it be able to run that are out now?

    I play LOTRO on my 20" iMac via Bootcamp (running XP) with the Standard VRAM, and it runs fantastic... though it is not at the very highest settings.

    Well, I don't have the 20", but I have a 17" intel iMac with an ATI x1600 128mb graphics card and I've run Call of Duty 2, GTA San Andreas, Starwars Empire at War, Godfather, Half Life 2 all very well.

    i have the 20" everythig standard except 1g ram (or is that standard? i forget) and i ran WoW very well but had some random issues that MAY have been caused by the need for more ram, but nothing was ever confrimed.

    Look at the specs of the thing and compare it to the specs you see on the boxes of games. It's not rocket science!!!!

    Everything runs well on a Core2Duo and a NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT graphics card.

    Well, If I had a box for every game I'm thinking about buying that would work.

    No the 24" has an nVidia graphics card, while the 20" has an ATI Radeon.
