    I have recently installed an additional 1GB RAM into Intel iMac bringing the total to 2GB and all I can say is WOW!

    This is how OSX was truly supposed to run.

    I managed to get Kingston RAM (brand new) on eBay for £71 inc. delivery.

    If you can afford it, I would highly recommend going for 2GB.

    Upping the Ram is about the best bang for the buck. Glad your happy. :)

    I upgraded from 1 GB to 2 GB as well and I'm glad I did. :)

    Hi nsheikh,

    Can you post a link to the eBay listing for that RAM?
    Sounds like an excellent deal. I'm thinking about increasing the RAM in my iMac too.

    Cheers Amigo.

    Though 2GB may seem overkill for some, I always recommend 2GB of RAM.

    I have 512MB. Good fun. :rolleyes:
    My mom says instead of upgrading the RAM I should run less programs. Even though my iMac stutters with Word, Firefox, and aMSN open.

    Not to be disrespectful at all to your mum, but,,, I hope you can safely and slowly and intelligently educate her that she is mistaken - all of these software applications require a piece of the pie to run, and RAM is the filling that makes it all so tasty; without that filling you will get crusty, waiting and waiting... ;)
