    You won't find a 1Gb ram stick for that iMac. They never made them that big. The most you could do is 512Mb in both slots.

    It won't. It's DDR2, iMac G4 800 uses PC100 or PC133 SDRAM.

    That is the wrong kind for your iMac. You need PC-133.

    Your link is the inside ram stick and mine is the outside ram stick. You can get either of them or both for the maximum of 1Gb.

    It should run pretty well for a 8 year old computer.
