Graphics Card Swap to ATI Radeon HD 2400+ / Nvidia 8600 +
Hello, my son got Counter Strike (a computer game) for Christmas and it is causing my iMac to crash. The current Mac is an Early 2009 iMac with 3.06 Ghz Intel Core 2 Processor, 8GB RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 512mb video card.
The game requires the following:
OS: MacOS X 10.6.6 or higher
Processor: Intel Core Duo Processor (2GHz or better)
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 2400 or better / NVidia 8600M or better
Storage: 8 GB available space
Currently his game keeps crashing every 20 minutes and he has to reboot the computer. It is killing him and I want to try and upgrade the video card to something that will work. I am also assuming the issue is the graphics card. However I need to rule it out and I thought changing it would be a good option.
Can I put in the listed graphics card or something compatible. I love the 24" iMac and would like to keep it. It works great minus this issue.
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
Is this a good question?
