Yeah I would have thought the video card would have been easy enough to replace to get it back up and running reliably.
One day we'll move up from our old 20" dual core iMac but it won't be for a year or so yet.

Nah, a new video card could be as much as $600 to $800 or more, labour to install it, another $300.00, and you might only get 6 months out of it before something else screws up on it, and you have to put your hand in your pocket again.

I just didn't think it was worth the risk.

Will look at digging it out... would be an interesting project!

My first iPod still works, an iPod Photo... Most of the time, it always was a little temperamental! I use it very occasionally to listen to an audio book.

My desktop computer at home is a late 2006 iMac... I think I have posted before that the graphics card in it is on it's last legs, causes it to crash regularly, but it is my main computer for now. I need it to last at least til mid year... partly because I am wanting to purchase a projector for the rumpus room soon but also because I am betting their is a major update in the air for the iMac?
