    Depends on 2 things - how much money you have and what sort of computers will be built in the next 5 years - welcome to the Forum but remember Crystal Balls are not that reliable.

    If your not in need of it in a hurry, I would almost recommend waiting. I'm sure the product line will be refreshed soon. Or at least those are the rumors going about. March was the last time the iMacs got updates.

    Just something to think about.

    If you can afford it, do the 2.93 or 3.06 with the larger drive and up the RAM....that will keep it current for a long time...

    I got the Imac 2.93 yesterday, first Mac, and Im so pleased with it.
    I do think the Hard Drive for such a computer is on the very small side, I got a 1TB usb drive 70, and time machine can use it for backing up every thing.
    I dont know the game you want to play so cant help on that.

    But for another 300 you can get the next model up 3.06 should keep you going for a few years. up faster CPU and bigger Hard Drive.
