    Hello, I have searched all over for any info on this but I really couldn't find much. So I'll just ask.

    This is what I have,
    iMac 24-inch 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 250GB and 4GB ram running a NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT .

    At this time the video card is starting to show it's age and it over heats when I put demand on it, like playing WoW. I am limping it along with smcFan control for now.

    I know I can bump up the video card to the 7600 which I am planing on doing but I was wondering while I had it apart was there anything else I can do to speed it up? I know it also had a 2.33GHz chip set in it and is that something I can switch out with out changing the whole Logic Board?

    Thanks.
    Adam

    Thanks flopticalcube

    That is what I am trying to weigh out. Sell or fix.

    The next computer I buy will prob be a MP, just to be able to get an Apple that I will be able to expand or upgrade as time goes on. Would love to keep the iMac as a secondary computer in a sense though.

    I've had it for about 4 years and find it hard to sell it lol
    I still have my G3 blue iMac lol
