yep, you will be able to max out SCII with that no problems. Its not a massively intensive game to run anyway. Its more of a hog towards the CPU side tbh.

For programming - yep. you can run all three major OSes on a Mac - OSX, Windows, and all variants of Linux. So you can use every language available, any particular tool you prefer etc etc, and develop for whatever platform you want.

You cant upgrade the graphics card. But put it this way. currently the top of the range AMD graphics card is a 6990. the second best is the 6970. the one in the iMac is mobile GPU, which means lower power draw, lower clock speeds and presumably less onboard RAM, but still top specs in terms of mobile GPUs. while it probably wont beat a full on dedicated desktop 68xx series, its one of the best atm.
