    So I have this iMac ...
    I want to boost the RAM ( has only 3GB ).

    How much can it use and what would be a good source for the RAM.

    You can upgrade to 6GB using 200-pin DDR2 667MHz memory.

    iMac 7,1 and sticky movies

    Hi there, I have the same iMac 7,1. I'm having trouble watching online movies from They keep freezing for up to 10 seconds and then continuing. Is this a memory issue? I'm able to play online games just fine, but not watch movies. I will gladly upgrade from 3GB to 6GB if this will solve the problem. Also, I'm using a wireless Virgin Mobile usb stick for internet if that matters. Appreciate any help that I can get. Thanks.

    i would point at that usb dongle being the problem. they are rarely fast enough to watch videos online.

    Also, dont thread jack.
