    I have iMac 27" from 2012 and graphic card is brokem. Does worth it pay for new motherboard on Mac which cost about 2000 $ or buy new one? Thanks for answers.

    Did you get a quote on what it will cost to fix?

    OP says $2,000

    I don't know where you're posting from or the spec of your model, but that sounds pretty close to what a new one would cost.

    I'm pretty sure that there was a known problem with some 2011-2012 iMac graphics cards. So much so that apple started a replacement programme. If you qualify, you might be able to get apple to replace it for free. Is it the Radeon HD 6970M?

    First of all, the way the original poster wrote their post that it could be read also that the Mac originally cost $2000 which seems logical given that is probably the case. Second, I asked what the quote was because it was not clear from the OP post whether that had been done. Finally, I wasn't making any assumptions just asking for more clarification.
