    I have 24 inch aluminum imac with 3.06ghz core 2 duo
    It currently has 2gb 800mgz ddr sdram
    I want to upgrade the ram up to 8gb but unsure if it it will be able to take that much.
    I read some can only take 4 and some can take 6 unofficially and some can take up to 8. I am unsure which version imac I have as I don't remember exactly when I purchased the machine...

    What is the maximum ram my machine can take?

    Here are the specs...

    Model Name: iMac
    Model Identifier: iMac8,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 3.06 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 6 MB
    Memory: 2 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz

    Thanks in advance
