I need to upgrade the ram in an imac g5 that I just acquired. I know it takes pc3200 (it's the non-sight version). But, I don't know anything about memory timings, CAS latency, etc. Does it really make a difference, or will any pc3200 work?

Specifically, will this work?:

It's the cheapest pc3200 I've found, by a pretty significant margin.

Yes, it will work. The key distinctions in PC3200 ram that a G5 user wants to watch for is that it is "low density" and "non-ECC" which are incompatible with non-servers.
