Does the current display not work and need replacing?

If your goal is to gut the iMac and put a Mac Mini in there, and if the display still works, then you'd be better off keeping the display in place and trying to upgrade the display cable to an HDMI format.

There's a MacRumors post of someone who did just that here, to use an old G4 iMac display as an external display for an HDMI MacBook.

The screen is bad. I want to exchange for another brand. I'm looking for any LCD that fits the frame. Do you know of any brands to recommend to me?
