Go Radeon HD 4650!
Pros: I've Had this Card for some time now (1 month) and It works Great! It handles Halo Games with No problem, handles the Sims 3 Great, and Does a fabulous job with Video editing. This Video card is extremely cheap, and works great. If you do 720p HD video editing, Play Medium End games, and want something that's cheap, This video card is right for you!
Cons: Had Some issues with the Catalyst Control Center, but You have to run it as Administrative for it to keep the settings.
Overall Review: I'm glad I purchased this card
Came with my 21.5 inch iMac
Pros: This is the stock processor that came with my iMac and I couldn't be happier. It runs great, so far cool, and handles everything I throw at it! Infact, it doesn't even Reach 100% Usage when I'm rendering some pretty intense stuff in 3D. Activity Monitor in Snow Leopard identfies it as a Quad Core because of the Hyper Threading, and it really does stand up to that. If you're afraid to buy because it's only an i3, don't be. This is definitally fast enough to handle somewhat intense to intense work!
Cons: There aren't any I can think of.
Overall Review: Running Bootcamp, windows gives it a 7.2 It also handles things like Vitural Machines well, though Windows XP in VMWare identifies it as an i5 :/
Pros: I purchased this Processor to upgrade my E5200 Dual-Core Processor and Have scene some Big differences! It's fast, works well when running multiple Applications, and kicks a*s!
Cons: When Rendering 1920x1080 Video, the Processor Reaches Extremely High temperatures. The Stock Heat sink and fan is also A joke. Had to use a separate one
Overall Review: This is good for someone who only Renders 1280x720 or lower Video. Overclocked to 2.88 GHz
