Could I use a Radeon HD4850 from a 2009 Core2Duo iMac in a 2011?
So this question is not about graphics card upgrade, it’s about DOWNgrade:
I have a broken 2009 27” C2D iMac, but the graphics card is still good. Is it possible to put this into the later 2011 Core-i model where the original 67xx card has failed? Seems like the older cards are more durable, and they look like they physically fit (maybe the heat sink needs to be from the 2011 model). There is OSX drivers for them, I don’t need the extra graphics power (or heat) of the 67xx series - so should I go for that combination?
Can anybody here answer this?
Is this a good question?
