    I have the following extra two RAM's here, the specs are:

    2 x 204-pin SODIUM DDR3 1333MHZ 9-9-9-24
    2 Gigs each.

    Can I put them into my Early 2006 iMac?
    Its specs for RAM are:

    512MB (single SODIMM) 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300)
    I believe 200-pin

    Is it worth a shot? or will I potentially damage my computer if I try to put them in?

    Thanks for reading, I hope to get some good help. Has anyone tried this?

    204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM is not compatible with the RAM slots in a 2006 iMac and you would potentially damage the RAM slots doing so, as that iMac needs 200-pin DDR2 SO-DIMM RAM modules.

    Also know, that an early 2006 iMac has a limit of 2 GB RAM, thus only two 1 GB 200-pin DDR2 SO-DIMM RAM modules will work with that.
