I have a Apple Certified Refurbished pre-iSight iMac G5 17" w/ 2.0GHZ PPC
its got 512MB RAM in 1 of the 2 slots (im hoping you already know this)






What im wondering is if i can purchase a lonely 1GB to put beside the 512MB or if i NEED to buy another 512 or 2-1GB's to keep it equal

i've heard this before from the Apple customer service, but they also insisted i needed 512mb DDR-Dimm or whatever (which i found out was for the next models of PPC iMacs, they dont support my older one)

so i found this on Newegg.com: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145505


Can anyone shed light on this subject?

Thanks in Advance,
Mac Fan... but ultimately a NEWB

Here are the specs.

Supports 400 MHz PC3200 DDR SDRAM. If installing RAM in both slots, use matching memory for best performance. (2x1GB)
