    Intel iMac, worth upgrading the videocard??
    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...

    Specs:
    Powerbook G4/ 15.2"/ 1.67 ghz/ 2 gb RAM/ ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 (128 mb RAM)/ 100 gb hdd@ 5400 RPM
    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.
