    Just got an iMac 24" a few weeks ago. Was thinking of upgrading my RAM but was wondering if I would really see much of a difference in 2 to 4?

    I really just use iTunes, do some video editing of home videos, surf the web, etc. Thoughts?

    Absolutely. I can barely work if I'm on a machine with less than 4GB (my 3GB-limited work-issued MacBook Pro drives me nuts), because I like to have tons of stuff open all the time so I can quickly switch around without waiting for things to start up. And like Eidorian said, memory is so cheap you're almost crazy not to max out your machine, unless you're doing nothing more than basic email/web surfing.

    if you've got the cash spare then just get it. As soon as I have the money available I'll be purchasing 4gigs of ram.

    I wouldn't say necessary, but 4GB is pretty cheap these days.
