    I currently have the ATI Radeon 9600 with 128mb of memory, and i just want to know, is it possible to upgrade the card? I have a 20" iMac G5 2.0 Ghz (it does not have the built in isight).

    If i am not mistaken they are soldered to the logicboard which means you can't.

    The only option you have if you want to feed your need for more graphics power go with the iMac Core Duo:D

    the bandwidth is way too low for usb.

    no other options other than another pc, or a gaming console. or to be content with your mac.
