Do you think my iMac would be significantly slower if I installed windows 7 instead of XP?
No, as the i7 is fast enough to handle Windows 7.
On another note, what specific iMac do you have? I assumed you had an i7, but that was the 7 in Windows 7, which is actually Windows 61
Which model iMac? What processor? How much RAM? Etc, etc.
My general answer is no, but without more information about your iMac, then I can't honestly answer.
Ok, it's a :
Intel duo 2.40GHZ
3 GB RAM
You didn't specify if you are running Windows in native (Boot Camp) or virtual (VirtualBox/VMWare/Parallels) environment.
I'd consider a RAM upgrade if you want more speed in either case.
I'm running on Bootcamp
I can only add one more GB of RAM.
4 would be better than 3 and it should only set you back ~$50.

I thought all 7,1 Aluminum iMacs can go up to 6Gb, since they have the Santa Rosa chipset.
I don't have an option/alt key on my iMac keyboard??
Do you have the keyboard that came with the iMac?
If so, it is between the CTRL and CMD key, the second key left from the space bar.
If it is a Windows keyboard (for whatever reason), use the Alt key on the right of the Windows key and on the left of the space bar.
Markings are different on non-US keyboards. They use a symbol instead of Option on UK versions... e.g. http://parkernet.com/applepro/index.html
