Hey everyone

I ve been researching about 27 inch imac with quad core processor for a week now and was really interested about its graphics card as i need real nice graphics to play quite detailed games. From what i had seen on the pictures. ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB seems to be a removable graphics card rather than a built in one and so my question is whether i could replace graphics cards if I wish to when deciding to play really detailed games.

Thanks.

It is removable, but a fairly specialist part. You have to find a graphics unit in the same form factor, hopefully these may come to market but you'll have to do some research.
