    Obviously a newbie here.. And my apologies for what may be a very silly question for most of you ..

    I'm planning to get a 2GB ram module to add to the 1 GB thats already present ..

    How do I find out exact specifications.. going thru System Profiler I got the following
    667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.. but wud that b 200pin or 240 pin .. how do i find that out>

    Also , a related query .. Is the performance better if I have 2 1 GB sticks or is it okay to have 1 1 GB and 1 2 GB module in place ?

    What Mac do you have?

    200 pins are for notebooks (PPC/Intel) and the iMac/MacMini (Intel) and 240 pins are for MacPros and iMacs (PPC) if I'm not mistaken.

    And maybe the Apple Store can help.
