    I have a 24 inch 2.4 core duo will I notice a worthwhile difference from 2 gigs ram to 4 gigs. I use aperture a lot plus encode movies with video monkey.

    Definitely. However, remember that your iMac can take up to 6GB of RAM so I might as well pay a bit more to get 2GB more RAM.

    There has only been one 2.4GHz 24" iMac and it can unofficially take up to 6GB of RAM

    Yes. 4GB is the official limited stated by Apple but 6GB has been tested and it works flawlessly.
