    I'm unlucky enough to have realized that my iMac stutters sometimes because it only has 1GB of RAM, how sad. I was wondering what type of RAM I can use to upgrade to? does it have to be 667MHz DDR2 or will another type suffice? all answers greatly appreciated <3

    It will need to be DDR2 667. DDR2 800 would probably work too, but there is no sense in that as your computer will only use it at 667MHz.
