    I have the 20" aluminum iMac and I thought I wouldn't be playing games on it... and well I was wrong, lol.

    The 1gb that came with it just isn't cutting it.

    Since I can't really upgrade anything else...
    What's the best pair of 2gb memory sticks I can get for it?

    Aren't these the budget ones? I'm looking for a pair that's for performance. I've seen some people saying certain ones perform better, and those are usually the ones with heat spreaders on them. And those are usually around 200~USD.

    Just don't know if there really is a performance.

    In my days of searching for RAM for my iMac I have never found notebook memory with heat sinks on them.

    However OWC has a lifetime warranty and it's very reliable, I have a 2GB stick in my iMac right now along with the 1GB stock.
