I am at the final stage of deciding which iMac to get. I am getting the 27" one, and I think I will get the duo because I did a test drive at the Apple store today and the quad core is slower then the duo for every day task. Anyway, just wondering if I get the duo core, should I upgrade the graphic card? Coz if I did, then I might as well get the quad core. I don't know.

A bit of background info, I am a photographer and do some video from time to time. I can afford either coz have been saving up for long. Like I said, I would re consider the quad core if I needed to upgrade the graphic card on the duo due to price.

Thanks
