    Theres a 2007 mac for sale near my area.

    Screen has gone black, and the seller had it diagnosed as a GPU NVidia issue. The GPU chip needs to be reflowed or reballed.

    Is this difficult? expensive fix?

    That sounds like a dead Logic Board to me...I'd advise you to leave it alone. Imacs are not that easy to split and repair...Even a GPU replacement is hard. I'd look for a better deal.
