I'm looking at adding a 1GB stick in my iMac since I just upgraded to Tiger.

Is Crucial going to be the best deal? They have 1GB stick for $129.

Now I have 512MB of PNY already in there (with the stock 256) so if i pull the stock 256 out and replace that with a 1GB stick would this run ok? Thanks.

You can use Ram Seeker for finding the best price. But I can not say for the best deal, because you might find a great price and receive cheap RAM. I know that Crucial RAM is of good quality.

well i guess when you look at activity monitor, and you are looking at the green part of the pie, how much should be available before the system starts running below average. I know someone said it before but i can't seem to find that post.

I think most of the times I have about 100MB free when i got like Limewire open and Safari, Mail, iTunes, and QT7, and widgets. Sometimes things stall so I'm thinking if I wanna have all these apps open at once I'm gonna need to up the RAM, yes?

or the easy way would be to close out stuff i don't need...

Best price i have seen is newegg.com they have some Corsair ValueSelect 1 gig ram sticks for $95 per stick. Or if you like taking chances they have some Rosewell 1 gig sticks for about $80.

I have 2 gigs of the Corsair in my Powermac and 1 gig in my iMac, they work great.
