iMac 24 3.06GHz Core 2 or I5

Hi,

I've decided to go with a mac and dump my PC and really like the Imac after seeing a friends imac(somewhat older) & using cs4 & Aperture. I'm on a budget and found a refurbished from Apple, iMac 24-inch 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo for US $1350.00 comes with 4GB & 1TB HD but also has a NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 with 512MB.

After reading the specs seems identical save processor and memory capacity. An I5 imac similar sells for $1700.00 I plan to use CS4 and Aperture 3 and wonder if I should opt for the 3.06 and save $350.00 or use it buy a 20" Apple display and have dual displays which I like better I think than one 27".

Thanks for your advice.

Rocco
