Hi,
I have a late 2006 I-mac with 1 GB of Ram. I would like to upgrade and get another 2 GB.
It the tech specs it says it has DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300).
Does anyone know of a place I can buy this.
I don't want to order the wrong ram and I don't want to pay a fortune for it.
Thank you

Need to know more information about your iMac. G5 & Intel based iMac's were sold in 2006...and each takes different ram.

Just saw you said it was a "late 2006" iMac...and yes they do take PC-5300 ram.

You could try these guys for the ram:

Also check out crucial.com

I really like crucial.com because you just enter the specs of your machine and it shows all the types of ram that will work with your machine. This way, you will be sure you ordered the correct ram.

+1 for OWC (macsales) ... You put in your Mac specs and they will give you a list of ALL compatible RAM for your specific machine. Live in Australia and had it 7days after order was put in .....

Great and reliable
