    Assuming you have Early-2008 iMac, you can upgrade your memory to 6GB, I think that's what OWC tested.

    Also, you can upgrade a disk to SSD, which you can find tutorials how to do online or on this forum.

    This should give you a boost however serious editing After Effects or comprehensive work in Photoshop will still take quite noticeable time.

    No problem at all. Search the forum for a guide and probably YT for video for the SSD, it shouldn't be too hard.

    Not sure what size you might be going for but you will see a massive difference between a current HDD and an SSD.

    I suggest more memory, another graphics card and an external harddrive for all that hard work to be backed-up to. It doesn't take a genius to understand the importance of having your precious work saved in several locations.
