Apple iMac "Core 2 Duo" 2.66 24-Inch (Early 2009) Specs

Identifiers: Early 2009 - MB418LL/A - iMac9,1 - A1225 - 2267

Since this video processor "shares memory", I would first upgrade it to the maximum of 8 GB of RAM and see if it fills your needs.

If you have the 2.66GHz machine 24", then I think the graphics chipset is part of the logic board. It also shares its video memory with main RAM.

If you have the 2.93GHz or 3.06GHz 24" machine than your machine had the option of three different video cards from the factory.

24-inch model with 2.93GHz processor, one of the following:

NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 graphics processor with 256MB of GDDR3 memory

NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 graphics processor with 512MB of GDDR3 memory

ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics processor with 512MB of GDDR3 memory

24-inch model with 3.06GHz processor, one of the following:

NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 graphics processor with 512MB of GDDR3 memory

ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics processor with 512MB of GDDR3 memory

These are all separate cards, MXM cards, with separate video memory. They are essentially notebook video cards.
