Help me decide which graphics card I should buy

#1hulkster23869Posted 2/17/2014 2:21:17 AM
So some of you may remember me from a couple days ago. I have decided to buy the iMac. I'm mainly going to be using it for work, but would like to game on it as well. The games I'm interested in playing on it are: World of warcraft, Diablo 3, League of Legends. I'm also open to playing more games on it, but my gaming PC is reserved for hardcore shooters. So i'm trying to decide if I should go with the [NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M Graphics Processor with 1 GB of GDDR5 Memory], which comes standard with the computer, or the [NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M Graphics Processor with 2 GB of GDDR5 Memory] which costs an extra $180. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

The 755M will choke.

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

Sounds as if you loads of cash to use up. Might as get the more expensive GPU.

The 775m will perform significantly better for the most part.

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.

Okay thank you. So work wise, i'm planning on building iOS apps. If I ever graduate to the point where I can make mediocre games, would the 775m help out in that regard? Or does the graphics card not really impact app development?

*sigh* I was ready to buy the premium, but I just realized that the cheaper one comes with a 3-yr warranty included, while the more expensive imac doesnt. that's a $122 value. so instead of paying an additional 180 for the better card, realistically i would be paying an extra $302. So is the card worth an extra $302 over the cheaper model?
