i want to know how to upgrade my 512 mb to big
and speed the speed to
does it work if i upgrade my computer
so what can i do to make my computer 17 in to high speed
Not entirely sure what you're asking, but if you'd like to know more about upgrading your ram, Apple has some nice info over here.
i was asking
if my imac 17 in intel can go higher
i want to use final cut express program
You can upgrade the RAM easily
(the type of RAM you will need depends on exactly which iMac you have)
You can upgrade the hard drive with a bit of effort disassembling the machine (probably not good to do if its still under warranty). Easier is adding an external Firewire hard drive.
You cannot upgrade the processor speed.
i got the warrenty and apple store said i cloud upgrade it to 1 gb or 2 gb
if i had external hard dive and download leopard on it
will my computer faster

what i can to upgrade and to speed it up
The easiest way to make a machine perform better is to add RAM.
This doesn't "speed up" the processing of the machine, really.
But adding RAM removes the slow downs from the machine having too little RAM. With 512 Mb RAM in your machine, the OS has to pause and swap information onto the hard drive frequently. If you upgrade to at least 1 Gb but better, 2 Gb, then the machine won't have to swap as often, so performance will be better.
See MR Guide to Buying RAM and Understanding Intel Mac RAM
Putting on an external hard drive won't change the speed, (unless you have completely filled your internal drive.)
Leopard may improve the speed a bit BUT you must upgrade the RAM first. That is the most important upgrade.
thanks when i add the 1 or 2 gb it run really fast
and everything works and give more graphic to my computer
and the intel will run faster
so final cut pro will work
17" intel iMac can take 3gb of ram.
so i can run final cut express
