    Question Which graphic card to repair my 24 inch Imac of 2008 ?
    Hi !

    I'm using an 24 inch Imac of 2008 : 4gb ram, 500gb HDD, core 2 duo @3,06gHZ, Nvidia 8800GS.
    My graphic card burn and she is near dead. I want to chage it, but I don't know what will be compatible.
    Can you help me ? I'm thinking the Ati HD2600 of an 2008/2007 20 inch Imac or an Ati 2400 of an 2008/2007 20 inch Imac will work, but I'm not sure. If anybody have tried, can he testify ? Is there an other graphic card that is compatible ? I don't want to take an new 8800GS, because it's unstable for long term use.

    Thanks !

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Are you sure ? Because the graphic card isn't welded in my Imac. It is in the standard MXM HE format. Don't you think it will work if I take a Video card of an other Imac of 2008 ?

    Check with ifixit first to see how much work is involved in pulling the old card out and replacing it: iFixit: The free repair manual
