Kindly pardon me if my question is redundant, as I joined the forum literally minutes ago and have just purchased an iMac...All I want to know is what are the most graphic intensive games that my particular system can run tolerably well (i.e., how well would it handle games like Battlefield 3 or Metro 2033)? Here are the specs:


iMac 27"

3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7

16GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 4x4GB

1TB Serial ATA Drive

AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2GB GDDR5



Thanks so much.

That video card is fairly robust. I don't see you having any trouble running either of those games.

But of course, you'll want to check the vendor's recommendations for each of the games you're interested in playing.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
