Hey,

I know I'll end up buying an intel imac within the next couple of weeks :p

I've been checking out the options, and thought about upgrading the videocard to 256. How many of you opted for the 256 upgrade?

I'm not much of a gamer, but do watch videos on occasion. Curious if it woud have a large advantage over the 128.

What are your thoughts...

VJ

If you're not going to use it, the extra cash could be better spent on RAM.

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

I got it. It's only $68 and you can't upgrade it after you buy it, so I went for it.

Oh, ****, then go for it. I thought it would be a bit more.
