    Hi all,

    My 1st gen G5 iMac is now out of warranty and I'm wondering if there are people around who can perform upgrades of componants. I'm mainly think about the graphics card; I'm happy with the CPU etc.

    Anybody know of anyone? I also have a flat-panel G4 iMac that I'm looking to beef up a bit.

    Cheers

    Stuart

    There is no graphics card, it's all integrated onto one single logic board.

    Sell the computer and buy a new one, that's how you upgrade iMacs.

    You can upgrade the memory and the drives, that is about it.

    Yup, fraid so!
    You could look for guides on how to overclock the processor, but I don't recommend it.

    cheers guys. Didn't know that. Not bothered really ... don't play games on the iMac, that's what consoles are for!
