    Hi,
    I have an iMac8,1 24 in. 3.06 GHz Intel with 4 GB SDRAM. I want to purchase a new 27 in. iMac and connect my 24 in. to it as a second monitor.

    How do I do this??

    Thank you
    Jerry

    Sell the 24 and buy a second monitor, then pocket the difference.

    This. I don't believe the 24-inch iMacs supported Target Display Mode. Someone may correct me on this.

    Sell the 24-inch and figure out what display you want (whether a 27" LED Cinema Display to match the iMac, or something else)

    Definitely sell the iMac. You can sell it and buy a nicer 24" monitor for what you sell it for. Plus the 24" iMacs can't be used as monitors.
