So I am trying to see if there is a cheaper alternative to a iMac that will give me equal or better performance. My budget is 900-1100 Canadian. Only a few requirements (some of them are obvious i know but i apologize :p ): FAAAAST CPU preferably Intel, 6GB DDR3 RAM, GOOD soundcard at good price, at least 1TB hard drive, 23 inch monitor and a half decent GFX card cause i like to get in the odd game of SC2 ;) 

Thanks in advance,

Soundcard? Unless you're rocking some sort of high-end analog setup you won't notice a difference. What will it be used for? Do you need a monitor? If not, resolution do you have?

Please provide the model iMac to beat, since a quick peek shows all of them over your budget, in $US.
