    I just bought a 2.4 Ghz iMac and I wanted to upgrade the ram since it only comes with 1GB, I wanted to purchase a 2GB module to add it up to 3GB since 2 2GB modules are double the price and that would be too much for my budget at this time.

    I found some memory at and I was wondering if it was compatible with the iMac, here's the link:

    The Dell RAM appears to be standard DDR2 PC5300 667MHz SO-DIMM which is indeed what your iMac uses. It's not a terrible price either and it says it is Kingston which is a good maker.

    I don't see any reason why it would not be just fine. That said, it is Dell RAM and I doubt they guarantee Mac compatibility. You can find similar prices on OWC (as per the post above) or Crucial RAM in the states that is sold specifically for use in Macs.

    I bought two 2GB sticks of very inexpensive Taiwanese UMAX RAM here in Japan and it is working flawlessly in my 24" aluminum iMac.
