I'm currently in the market for a new iMac, and am debating between configurations. I may do some light gaming (WoW type stuff), but mostly it will be an internet, media, and programming PC. I like the idea of the 27" since it will be my main computer. I configured one with the i7 processor, 4GB of RAM (Would rather upgrade myself later), 2TB HD, 2GB ATI Graphics Card and Applecare - which with my student discount brought it to $2423.


Being rather new to Mac's, or rather returning to, does this configuration seem overkill for what I will be doing? Does anyone have any recommendations that may save me some money, or does this configuration look good? I'm also planning on purchasing a MBA when they refresh, so my use will be split between the two of them.
