The short answer? No.

The long answer? A new iMac is a video card upgrade. New computer = new components. That's teh downside to purchasing a computer like an iMac or a notebook that you're not intirely happy with the internals of.

Why Apple flip flops between GPU manufactures instead of sticking with one is beyond me. Last gen MBP had an ATI and the iMac had an Nvidia. This gen MBP has the Nvidia and the iMac has an ATI. And Apple should know that if they want to attract gamers (which they do, or else they wouldn't be advertising that EA has come to OS X) then they should recognize that it's not all about software, but it's also about hardware.

Gamers don't want great games and mediocre hardware.
