I have an old 2009 27'' iMac that seems to have a bad graphics card — anyone know how to get these fixed? Apple only takes computers < 5 years old, and the local retailers where I live also only service computers up to 6 years of age. The local retailer also said that if my computer was a little newer and within their service possibilities, they would have charged $600-$800 to replace a broken video card—HA. Replacement video cards for the 27'' iMac seem way too expensive ( e.g. $319 for the cheapest, worst card: https://www.amazon.com/Apple-2-66GHz-Video-Radeon-256MB/dp/B00CMNC1ZA ) considering that the computer is worth maybe $550 when it's in good working order. Is there any way to get this fixed for a reasonable price and effort? Like are there some alternative video cards I could put in it besides the three that were normally shipped with the 2009 iMac? I would not mind fixing it myself (I've already bought a replacement) as I'd rather the computer work than be dumped into a trash heap, but I'm absolutely not willing to spend an absurd $350+ (inc taxes and S&H) on a 7 year old video card. I could maybe sell it for parts — the computer also boots and works but only in Single User Mode or as an external T-bold display— but I'd be lucky to even get $100 for it (I cannot practically use eBay or Amazon Marketplace in the country where I am).
