Base-line 27' iMac vs PC!

Hey everyone,

I can either get a base-line refurbished 27 inch imac for $1400 or this computer right here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883229283 . I'll be doing some video editing, school stuff and some games. (Starcraft 2) There is one game on the PC that I like quite a lot but it's not downloadable for macs yet :( I can still use bootcamp though!

Thanks so much guys! :D

    Get the PC from newegg. Performance wise, it eats the Mac for breakfast.

    true but then the 27' IPS screen on the mac is just a MONSTER :/
  3. You can buy a 27 inch 3D display for your money you save. BTW, the Cyberpower is out of stock and i7-2600k is not the best in performance per dollar for gaming. I would BYO and get 2500k, save $100 and put it into a 6950.
  4. Don't buy a mac on the premise it has a pretty screen. That Cyberpower would hands down DESTROY that imac in every single way shape and form and still leave you with enough cash left over to buy a nicer screen than what the mac has anyways
  5. Thanks so much guys! Battlefield 3 here I come! Haha... OK I've narrowed my 2 pc choices down. The Cyberpower is out of stock. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005NDEBYK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

    The only thing that eats for breakfast are human beings not machines!

  8. Thanks everyone for the replies. I'm sure u guys will hate me for this but I've decided to go with the mac. I have a macbook air and I love it and checkin out the iMac at the Apple store just made the difference for me. Thanks you everyone for your help but for now, I just believe that OS X is the better Os. I'll install bootcamp too so I can play some games.


    Thanks!
