    I hate to beg or ask for stuff but would anyone happen to have any spare imac g3 ram sitting around? I would buy some but I don't want to spend my money on a computer that I only use for fun.

    Unfortunately, no. You need SO-DIMM RAM.

    You really need to specifiy which iMac G3 in your posts. Yours is a Tray Loader, I believe.

    Not having a go, but looking at other threads here some people offer suggestions that don't apply to your model.


    EDIT: This info may be helpful too

    Anything bigger than 64Mb is getting kinda expensive these days. RAM prices tend to skyrocket again after the producers stop making it and it becomes more rare. I would bet someone has spare somewhere, but if you're wanting enough to make the computer "usable" then I would say plan on paying at least something for it.

    I've got a stick of Infineon PC133 sdram 128mb that my G3 was running fine on. I upgraded to 512 just today. I can't give it away but I'll put in your mail box for a $7 paypal payment to cover s&h. PM me for details if you're interested.
