    Question Upgrading iMac G5 RAM

    I recently bought an iMac G5 17" 1.8GHz with 256MB of ram. I would like to upgrade the ram by myself but I don't know how. Where I live there are no Apple stores, so I have to do it by myself.

    I searched the web for a guide but I didnt find anything. Can anyone help me with a step by step guide (with pictures if possible) on how to add an extra 256 mb stick in my iMac.

    I just realized, after hours of searching the net, the memory ugrade guide is right under my nose in the User's Guide that came with the iMac...

    silly me =P

    Actually, this thread may in fact be useful to some. Not eveyone knows that the user's guide shows how to upgrade the iMac G5's memory.

    My School just upgraded from the G5s to the latest ones. look pretty flash..... anyway, i got one of their old ones cheap:

    1.8 GHz single processor, 768 MB RAM, 80 GB Hard drive, OSX v3.9.

    since its my first mac, i was just wondering weather its as easy to upgrade the ram and hard drives as it is on a PC. ALSO, am i pushing it too far by putting in 4gig of ram or should i just go to something like 2 gig. just incase the OS or processor couldnt handle that much random access......

    this is my studio computer for recording and mixing sound and stuff, so i want it to run better.
