    I am looking to update the RAM on my iMac but unsure what the maximum RAM i can go up to and where to buy from. Im in the UK.

    I was looking at upgrading to 4GB but not sure what part i need to get, any links, info would be great
    Sorry if this has been answered before.

    My spec
    iMac8,1
    2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    2GB 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM

    Check Crucial.com

    I always buy memory for my Macs from Crucial. Great prices, reliable memory, up to date configuration info, and fast delivery times in the US.

    Go to their site:

    http://www.crucial.com/uk/

    You will find two methods of use

    1) System scanner and ram recommendation

    2) System selection and recommendation

    Both do the same thing really....
    I believe they also give some instruction of how to upgrade the ram, but I also think their are other sites that give good step by step guides.

    Think iclarified may be one - but can't remember
