Whew. Anywhere from $250-$450 *just* for the interface box...then you have to buy the card. You'd have to be a serious Apple fan to fork out this much money just to use a dedicated GPU. Kind of ruins the all-in-one clean look of their modern iMac desktops. I guess it's better than nothing for those wanting to game.

When Apple made full sized case Mac Pros some years back, you could buy Apple-approved dedicated internal PCIe video cards. Some are still for sale out there on the used market like a GTX 680 variant.

Just about every Apple user is a dedicated Apple fan. It's like alcoholism; 10% of the population are predisposed to the addiction, they make what would otherwise be poor computer purchasing decisions, and there is no reasoning with them when they're in fan boy mode.
