Yes, it's upgradeable. See this article:

That refers to the old white version doesn't it? The article is from 2006.

I don't know of anyone swapping the GPU in that or the aluminium version. Even if you could, you'd have to take the machine apart and void your warranty.

Anyway, I can clearly see the 24" iMac with nVidia GPU at the Mexican Apple store: http://store.apple.com/mx/browse/hom...c?mco=MjI4NDk4

Thanks for the quick replys to my question,
(http://tinyurl.com/5s4zbo) i think this article is for the old IMAC 24, but ill continue searching about this possible upgrade.
and about the Apple Store Mexico , i know there is available but i dont want to buy it online.
one more question:
-im a user of "MAYA 2008", for this software which graphic card is better ? ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO 256mb OR Nvidea GeForce 8800 GS 512 MB_?
thanks all
