    Wassup everybody?

    I am looking at getting an imac desktop and was wondering if it is really really worth it to spend more to get the 256mb video card. Would I regret it in the long run? I don't do video editing but will it be important to have a good one for future programs?

    No it's not worth it. Unless you're doing high-end graphics or rendering work or plan on using a 500" monitor, the base video card should be fine.
