I'm fed up with Windows and want my next computer to be a Mac—but the product landscape has changed a lot since the last time I seriously considered it. Is an iMac really a competitive machine for someone doing heavy graphics and video work? [more inside]

About a year and a half ago my graphics card crapped out. I'd like to replace it at a level where I can play modern games again, but not necessarily at the highest graphics setting. I've never replaced a graphics card before, so I'm not sure what I'm looking for in terms of purchasing and installation. Specs for my system inside... [more inside]
Do I really have to replace the motherboard? My computer is showing no display and I think I've ruled out everything except the motherboard. Changing that is obviously expensive and time-consuming, so please tell me if I'm missing anything! [more inside]

I am just finishing off a course in computer graphics (theory and programming, *not* graphics design). It is without a doubt the worst course with the worst prof (and textbook!) I have ever had. It completely killed the interest I had in computer graphics. Please point me to some well-written and paced resources (books/articles, not forums) that you would recommend to help me regain my interest in this fascinating field. (Not just OpenGL/DirectX primers, I am actually interested in theory as well)
My son, it turns out, is a genius with Flash animation, at least as far as his high school has allowed him to pursue it. He is very excited (and that means a lot in a teen!) about the idea of animation now that he is thinking about career plans for his future. What resources, advice, schools, courses, etc. can I give him to help him leverage his interest into a possible career path? We're in central Florida, if that means anything.
I want to learn how to create 8bit -16bit style animations, kind of like "Code Monkeys" on tv network G4. Where do I start?

I have my eye on a new computer. I have the choice between including a 256Mb GeForce 6600 or a 256Mb Radeon X700. For an avid gamer, I have no idea if the latter is worth the extra £50. Is it?

I'm thinking of some artist who put together graphic renderings (orthogonal?) of various famous news photos -- the King assassination, the Buddhist monk immolating himself in Saigon, the beating of Reginald Denny -- and made them look like stills from computer games. Does this ring a bell with anyone?
My monitor is finally dying on me. I'd like to spend up to $300 max for a decent flat screen monitor. I do some graphic work in Photoshop and play some video games on my PC. Any recommendations for that price (less would be preferable). Any advice on where to buy? Is Ebay ok?
So, I received Half-Life 2 / Counter-Strike:Source as a gift, and I think it's time to upgrade my system. I'm fairly good with homebuilding computers, but the new graphics card offerings have me a bit confused. [+] [more inside]
