My iMac screen is going crazy when gaming sometimes with MW3. It starts flickering and eventually goes completely black. Also, sometimes on the Mac side it will flicker. Is there a firmware update for the Mid 2010 iMac 27" to resolve graphics issues? I am running the current version of Lion and all updates have been completed as of a few mins ago...all I had was an iTunes update and a printer update.

See my System Info and a pic of the iMac screen.

I searched Apple support for you and didn't find anything.

I suggest that you give Apple Care a call or go to an Apple retail store and bring it in. With that, I hope that you have Apple Care for your iMac.

Thanks Mike, no AppleCare, guess I have to buy myself a new iMac...:)

You don't have to buy a new iMac per se. Look into how much it would cost you to get the issue repaired. Also, check to see if there are refurbs you can go with.

Here is my fan speed and temp of all of my components on my iMac. Does it look normal?

Yeah those stats look normal.
