    Hi all,

    Apologies if this or something similar has been posted elsewhere...
    I currently have a 2.8Ghz i7 20.5" iMac (2011) with a 6770M 512mb.
    My question is, am I able to replace this GPU with a 6970M as per the 27" models? Your help/answers are appreciated. Cheers. :)

    the correct answer is "not offically"

    im sure something could be done, as its an MXM removable board in the 2011 imacs, however it would likely need a custom heatsink creating, and custom firmware for the card.

    so short answer

    nope. :D

    because apple wont offer a decent video card in its imacs im going hackintosh for my desktop.
