Spankey is an unknown at this point

I am wavering back and forth on this. So far, it seems like there is no way the 2600 is ever going to match the 7600. BUT...I think there will be improvements. If you look at a lot of the game tests, the speeds are quite different between Windows and OS X. I would suspect the Windows drivers for the 7600 are much more mature than the 2600.

Leopard is another unknown. The 2600 cards may be more fine tuned for Leopard than Tiger. Either way, playing WoW with everything maxed and getting framerates of 40-60fps is pretty **** good. Would I prefer more? Who wouldn't. When you think that EA sports released Madden 08 on the PS3 with a 30fps max and considered that "good enough", why ask more from the iMac than a next gen console.
