    Hi,
    I was wondering if I could exchange the ATI Radeon 4850 HD 512MB GDDR3
    that is built into the 27" iMac of 2009 with the HD 5750 1GB GDDR5 found in the new iMac...

    When I called our local Apple dealer they told me it was onboard and thus couldnt be, but I think it isnt onboard...


    Does anyone know?

    400$ for a GPU that costs 110$ for PCs :rolleyes: :D

    It's possible but the price is ridiculous for 10-20% performance increase. Besides, if you include the price of installation, you can get a PC with more power for the money.
