Gamer's Dream iMac

I am new to Mac and have a few questions about an iMac I saw on macosrumors.com.
http://www.macosrumors.com/20060205A.php

1: How reliably is macosrumors.com ?
2: Will this have the ability to edit HD?

1. It is as reliable as any other unsubstantiated claim or conjecture can be. It is merely what the site is named, a rumor, not a fact. Interpret it as you like.

2. And again, since any article or claim on that site is nothing more than a rumor, no one person can answer that any better than the next person can. Your guess is just as good as anyone else's.

Ha, they'll have to make a 23" iMac to handle all the heat from that thing. Dual GPUs with 256mb ram each and a dual core 2.8ghz processor should be enough to keep your room toasty in the winter too

And the PowerMac G5 isn't?

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

Actually, my point was not to the post above mine (maybe I should've hit "Quote"), but I meant as to the "gamer's dream".

I know it would be kind of hard to give up the slots, but you could easily beef up a PowerMac with a lot more than anything you could even cram inside of a 30" iMac (ok, maybe not, but you get my point).

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