    Hey all,

    My mother has this god-awful iMac G4 1Ghz 17" from 2003 that runs like an absolute dog.

    It's got a new hard drive, made a slight improvement.

    Anyway, it's RAM setup is 256/256=512. The user one is PC2100 DDR 200 pin and the Apple one is 184 pin.

    I have plenty of spare RAM, including a 2GB module of PC2-5300 DDR2 200 pin from a dead MacBook mid-2007.

    Is this backwards compatible with the user accessible slot? I know 2GB is the max for the iMac G4 - I will just remove the Apple one.

    Cheers!
    J
