    Found this on Newegg.com for $69.99 and was considering adding it to the 4 GB already installed in my late-2009 model 21.5" iMac. It looks different than other sticks that I know are compatible, so I was just concerned it would not work. New to adding RAM... any advice?

    G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL

    Oops, it's not really comparably priced. I thought you were going from 4 to 8. Anyway, they have my extremely strong recommendation. If you want to get it somewhere else, just look up the specs on the page I linked. That G.Skill laptop RAM you posted is what's in the 2009 iMac, but slower than that in the 2010 iMac.
