OK guys here the crack I was going to wait until Leopard came out in fact I had decided that I would, but I can't wait, so looking on the refurb store I came across (it might go any time so I'll have to be quick) A 2.16Ghz machine, I won't go through all the specs, as I'm basically looking for your views on the difference between the Vid Cards
so which is the better the
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics with 128MB SDRAM
ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 128MB of GDDR3 SDRAM
Any thoughts ?

The older models had the ATI Mobility Radeon X1600, like the iMacs. The current generation uses the NVIDIA card- which, I believe, is DirecetX-10 compatible should you want to install Vista and play games.
I'd go with the NIVIDIA card.Sitting, waiting, wishing...

Thanks guys I was being a little hasty and if it was say a second Mac I may have gone for it, I'll wait a while (when I really have the dosh LOLz) and get the newer model.
