Upgrade iMac video card?

Hi,

If I buy the cheapest iMac with NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics:

Can I later upgrade the video card later on when I want it?

Thank you! :)

Here you can read articles about mac upgrade.

But there is no at all good solution for VGA upgrade, like on PC. If you need more graphic power, buy better IMAC rather.

The simple answer is no.

The more complex answer is yes if you were able to find a replacement video card that was the correct form factor, compatible with the heat and power requirements of the iMac model, and just happened to be available separately.

So, really the answer is no.  If you really need to have that level of expandability then purchase a Mac Pro.
