What iMac or mac mini should I buy to replace this?

I have this 2009 Imac, that is on its way out. From what i understand its the video chip. And it is not worth it to repair it. I love this computer and i am looking for something similar that is a bit newer (but still old because i have a low budget). Are there certain models/ years of Imacs i should look for? Some friends have told me i’d be better off with a mac mini. Personally i just love having the computer and screen all in one. I use my computer for email and video streaming, i also started playing Starcraft on it, like i used to when i was a kid. My current imac couldnt handle it very well and would glitch out and freeze sometimes while playing or exiting the game. It would be nice but not crucial to get a mac that could handle starcraft brood wars.

Hey WetPaper. Just thought I'd share the specs of my machine; I have no issues playing Brood Wars or even SC2.

I have a 2012 27" iMac quad core i5, it still has the standard 8 GB of ram and a 1 TB fusion drive; That being said I also have the top spec GeForce GTX 680MX, although I'm sure the 675MX would be just fine as well.


Thank you! You want to know the specs of my 2009 imac thats on its way out? 24” early 2009.

Processor 2.93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
