    So I got Lion the other day for my 2008 iMac (20", 2.66Ghz, 2Gb RAM) and have noticed it's quite sluggish.

    I'm guessing a RAM boost would sort that out, but do I go for 4Gb or 6Gb? Has anyone got experience with 6Gb in the 2008 iMac? The most piggish programs I use are Logic, Photoshop, iTunes, etc. with some occasional gaming.

    Your advice would be much appreciated! :cool:

    You may as well install as much RAM as can be installed in your iMac, especially if you have the money.

    Max it out. I just installed 8GB on my 2009 iMac.

    I agree. Memory is cheap these days. Buy as much as you can (that will work in your 2008 iMac)....

    Cheers for the advice guys, 6GB it is. I would like to go with OWC to get a 6GB pack but does anyone know of a good place to get the same in the UK?
