    It's at the end of its useful life as far as iOS support goes... instead of throwing away, have it recycled. It's lived a good life... and as the movie song goes... "Let it go..."

    You can also use it as a server.

    If that's all you use it for, then you can continue to use it for that as long as it turns on and boots up. And knowing Apple products it could continue to run for a long long while.
    That being said, you could consider getting a Mac Mini and then using the 27" iMac as the monitor (although double check that the iMac can be used this way. I think some generations can and others cannot). If that works, then you'll have a new computer but still be able to use that new 27" screen.
