That's a good decision. (replacing the hard drive) One of the best on line resellers of hard drives and Mac replacement parts is Other World Computing. They have an 800 number and also do on line chat. Here's the LINK. For information purposes, your iMac uses a 3.5" SATA drive.

The instructions to replace the drive and also the special tools you will need can be found at the "ifixit" web site. Here's the LINK. Have your model number handy. Then go to the repair instructions section and look up the step by step manual for changing out your hard drive. Download the PDF file and print it out so you can follow along. While you're there at ifixit, you might want to order any tools that you will need. As I mentioned before, suction cups and torx drivers are needed. If you can get those things locally or from your IT guy, that's fine.

Good luck with the repair and keep us informed.
