    I'm not computer illiterate lol, and I know everything i need to know about the ram.

    I wanted to get 1 4GB stick and 1 2GB stick for a maximum of 6GB of ram. I have a 2008 iMac, so thats all it can take.

    I went to OWC but there ram is overpriced, $130 for 2+4gb pack. Can someone recommend me some good ram?

    dd2 800 mhz

    Thanks!!

    It should improve the performance a lot. Warranty will not be voided.

    I have the iMac 8,1 as well. I thought officially it only takes up to 4gb. Will 6gb work? The memory won't be running in dual channel mode, 2x2gb, (or whatever it is called). Does that make a difference?

    Thanks

    6 will work, and dual channel doesn't really make a whole lot of difference except in benchmarks. Plus it will actually use 4GB in dual-channel, and only 2GB will not be
