    Many of the better sites to get RAM will help you find the correct type of RAM. Crucial or Macsales are good places to check. On either one just choose the model of iMac you have.

    Your mac supports up to 4GB of RAM (I've heard even 6GB is ok). You need 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, so-dimm PC2-6400.

    Your information above states you have an iMac8,1 which according to everymac is an Early 2008 model.
