Okay, I love to push the limits of every piece of computer equipment i own and so far my biggest project is a 2009 27" iMac already modded with a 2.93 i7 ( lynnfield ). Now I would like to change the video memory . I know everyone is going to say it's not possible But I love a good challenge and if their is any possibility I would love to hear the idea. I know it's integrated but if you can put it in i figure there must be some way to take it out lol .

No and never is not in my dictionary, Anything can be done with hard work and perseverance - TheAmazingApple

Take a look at your model breakdown at iFixit: The free repair manual. I believe your machine uses a GPU daughter card which plugs into the logic board. However, I'm not sure if the VRAM is located on the daughter card. It would seem to make sense if it was.

Let us know.
