    i'm a big ole dummy, and i need some help, quick. i'm taking my sister out to get her an emac this morning, and i thought i might get myself some extra ram while i'm at it. so i started researching, and i can't even figure out exactly what it is i need.

    i have an 800mhz 15" fp g4 iMac w/superdrive, preinstalled 256 mb ram (the original top of the line model).

    what do i need in extra ram, and where's the best place to go? thanks.:D

    I personally like to check for the best deals on memory via DealRAM.

    You need PC133 SDRAM. How do I know? I had a look on EveryMac ;)

    Chris, ever helpful

    thanks chris --

    i think i'm getting a handle on this -- i need 144-pin SODIMM to put into the user-upgradeable slot, correct? best price i'm finding is at crucial.com.

    have i got it all right?
    thanks

    We're on the right track. There's a system specific check at DealRAM which gives these results.
