    Hi guys, got a 24inch iMac C2D 2.4ghz with 3gb of ram currently, will I see much benefit from the extra gig upgrade?

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Depends what you are doing.

    Going to dual channel access with a matched 2 GB pair will get you a very modest (6% or so) boost. Whether the extra 1 GB makes a difference depends how hard you are pushing the 3 GB now. If you are doing Photoshop heavily, digital audio or digital video, or running virtual machines with different OSs. then the extra may be worth it.
