Guys,

Not so newbie here but I recently broke out this older unit for downstairs and it's kinda sluggish with the 10.4.11 upgrade. iPhoto, etc.

I want to install 2gb of ram and am unsure if the Kingston 184 pin units will work in these.

(Kingston 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 333 (PC 2700) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model KVR333X64C25K2/2G)

Next question if this is the correct memory is to locate better instructions for installing the "deeper in" (some call it upper, some call it lower) slot. Lowendmac.com has some instructions but I have to question anyone who starts off by using a wool blanket to lay the unit on! (static doncha know!)

If anyone can offer any assistance with this I would appreciate it!

Mark

PS, Yes I know that this officially isn't supposed to support 2gb per Apple.

PSS, Is this worth it also? This has really been a great machine after all these years (still using my old Lime iMac for my kids to this day) I have plenty of external HD's for my music and pictures which is the extent of my processing. But for 75 bucks it's a lot cheaper than a new one. Besides this lampshade unit is SOOOOO COOOOL!

Thanks for the link. (think I may have seen this already)

So it's the 200 pin and not the 184 from what I can see there?!

Any links to detailed install in the upper/deeper ram?
