I have a 2007 iMac. GPU out, but had already upgraded HD to 2TB and 4GB RAM. What should I do with it? Can the GPU be replaced, and where/what should I put in (ATI Radeon HD 2600 256MB?) Otherwise, does anyone have any other ideas? Seems like it should have some value still. I was looking for home server options, don't think this is it.

Here's the guide from iFixit for replacing the GPU in a 2007 20" iMac:
Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2133 and 2210 Video Card - iFixit

The 24" model should be comparable. You can find a compatible card here:

Thanks, I may do that. Thinking of mounting it above my bar, or giving it to my son when he gets old enough.
