iMac 27 inch videocard replacement due to vertical stripes on screen

Texto:

Hi all,

Since last week i got vertical stripes on my imac.

Apple said its due to the 6970m 2gb failure but my mac is out of warrenty for it. Also for the recall a while ago.

I checked the internet but an replacement would cost me 600-800 usd. Which would not make sense on a 2.000 usd machine of nearly 5 years old.

Do you know if your stuck with the apple card or could you repair this with a dell 6970m card 2gb ram that is only 150-200 usd?

Else it will be my last mac as this is crazy expensive to repair:(

Thanks for your thoughts!
