    Hi, what is the most updated graphics card i can install on my mid2010 27" iMac?
    Is it possible to install a better graphics card than what its already using (ATI Radeon HD 5750 1024 MB)?

    The 6970M is generally regarded as the best upgrade but not the easiest job in the world and of course it depends how much you have to pay for the card. Have a glance through this for difficulty:-

    Many thanks for your help... a few comments...
    1. I was expecting a grafx card newer than 2011! Something at least after 2015
    2. Outstandingly expensive... why so?
    3. I wish there was a video available... is there?
