People complained about the $100 markup. Putting in a superfluous card would bump that up even more.

I for one wouldn't mind the extra cost given a choice. =p Especially since I'd end up paying around 1,200 dollars for a fully loaded Core Duo Mac Mini.

You have the choice - if you want anything decent for games buy an iMac ;)

And what if I don't want the built in screen, isight and other things it has? I don't like this. Maybe that's apple's business policy but that doesn't mean i have to agree with it. They force you to get a completely different model\form factor just to get a decent video card. I resent being forced to buy an iMac.

I would like a mac that is not all in one that has a decent video card that is not a big honking tower but I guess that's too much to ask. I love the mac mini's form factor but if I have to sacrifice a little size then I wouldn't mind but I don't want an all in one computer nor would I prefer to get a big tower but if I have to I will however I would just as soon buy a shuttle XPC.
