    No, the system board only has a single, soldered-in processor. If you need multiple processors, you have to upgrade to the Mac Pro.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Thanks
    ok thanks for the answer.
    one more question:
    intel core 2 duo 2.4 Ghz,
    Is it two 2.4Ghz intel processors getting a total of 4.8Ghz or is it 2.4Ghz total?

    It is a single processor with 2 processing cores, each running at 2.4GHz. The clock rate is not cumulative, so it wouldn't be measured as 4.8GHz, despite the fact that each core operates at 2.4GHz.

    Also, it might be helpful to note that a Core 2 Duo CPU running at 2.4GHz is not necessarily faster than a Core 2 Solo CPU running at 2.4GHz. The only time the second core contributes to performance is when the application that is being run is able to take advantage of multiple processors. Even today, when multiple processors are more common, there are relatively few applications that can take advantage of more than one CPU.

    1) According to Crucial, up to 4GB.

    2) No, the GPU is soldered to the system board from what I understand.

    Your iMac supports a max of 4GB of RAM and has two memory slots.

    You can only have a single video card in the iMac, and no, it can't be swapped out, unless you plan on violating your warranty. Even then, it's difficult to find a third party vendor who will sell you an updated iMac video card. You would probably have to search eBay for the parts or get a broken iMac and pull the video card from that.

    Best advice: Don't touch anything inside other than the RAM.

    Specs:
    iMac (Aluminum), MacBook (Core Duo), iPod (Classic), 16GB iPhone 3G
    That's the only real thing about those all-in-one type computers like the iMac, upgrade and part swaps are either not possible or real tricky.
