    I am planning on getting a new 24 inch imac but the video card is too weak and i was wondering if it is possible to replace it for something stronger? Also ram, is there a store that does it? Thanks

    Weak is very subjective, if you are buying a 24" iMac to play games then yes I guess the 2600pro would be considered weak. However I use all the iLife and iWork suites, Photoshop CS3, Shake, Final Cut Express without any issues at all.

    You can not upgrade the iMac video gpu. Ram is an easy upgrade, I would recommend you do not buy from Apple because their prices on ram are insane. Any good quality 200 so-dimm 667mhz cl5 ram will work just fine.

    The iMac is not a gaming machine while there are games for the OSX platform, I think its safe to say Apple has never built computers geared towards gaming but I will add I play WOW all the time with no issues.

    Hope this helps.
