Default iMac video card upgrade

Hello,

I have an early 2008 20-inch iMac and I would like to upgrade the video card. It currently has an ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT 128MB card in it. Is it possible for me to upgrade to a newer card and if so what kind of cards should I be looking for?

Thank you

Before you upgrade the VGA card, first thing that you must be check is compatibility of VGA itself. Based on My experience, iMac is more difficult than PC as general. You should looking for VGA card that match with iMac specification.

to my knowledge, you can't just chop and change video cards like that in Mac desktops. Usually you have to buy the Apple-specific video card upgrades, which are hella expensive.
