Upgrades available for 2006 iMac 5,1 Processor, Memory, and Graphics?
I'm not a computer stud, but I have basic ability for mechanics. I have repaired computers, phones, and iPad screens in the past successfully (and unsuccessfully too!!!HA!) so now I'm thinking instead of junking my two old 2006 IMacs I want to upgrade them. This is because my six year old is totally into computers so I thought it would be fun for him to see the guts of one and further that passion. If I break one then I'm thinking I will probably get it right on the other.
I want it so that my son can play games, I can record the TV while we play games together, and it can run the latest softwares and upgrades for a few more years.
***They are late 2006 imac white box 20" 2.16 intel core duo 2gb 667 mhz ddr2 sdram.
I just don't know a thing about components. I don't want to go crazy on budget, but it isn't my main concern. I would like help if anyone could weigh in on what fits inside the computer and is a good all around component.
This question hasn't been asked since 2010 so I'm thinking there is some good stuff out there for cheaper.
What Graphics Card?
(for gaming and recording, editing video)
Thanks a ton for your input!
This is what it says when I click on about this Mac.
Thanks for updating. And thanks for the info!
Update, I'm not sure if the image shows.
The memory says Bank 0/ DIMMO 1G DDR2 SDRAM 667 MHz
Same for Bank 1/DIMM1.
So I look for these in 2 GB slots each, correct?
Is this a good question?
