    I have an 20" iMac v5.1 Core 2 Duo, late 2006, I've been getting pixel lines on the screen and the display has been freezing with sudden movements like expose, so I need to get the video card replaced. Does anyone know if I can order a replacement video card online myself and have it installed without going through apple? If not, how much would you expect it to cost through apple?

    You'll have to have Apple do it, really. There is no "card".
