    The processor difference is significant. The dual core operates at a higher frequency, but the quad core is more future-proof with a slightly lower frequency. The graphics card with the quad core is the highest, but is an option on the dual core version..

    If you are considering purchasing a 27" iMac might I suggest that you first visit Apple - iMac - Technical Specifications and read that and come back with a few more specific questions..
