I am looking to upgrade the memory of my iMac but I am having difficulty finding the correct module. Can you please help?

Machine Spec-

iMac G5
Machine Model: PowerMac 12,1
CPU Type: PowerPC G5 (3.0)
CPU's: 1
CPU Speed: 1.9Ghz
Memory: 512 MB (Built In)
Bus Speed: 633 Mhz

The empty slot is DIMM1/J6700

I have found this module on eBuyer - Generic 2GB DDR2 667MHz Memory Module - Ebuyer

If I buy this will it work?

Hope you can help, my low speed and inability to find the right module is driving me crazy!
Thank you.

And in fact start with this from OWC:-


Memory for Apple iMac G5 1.9GHz and 2.1GHz equipped with built in Apple iSight Camera

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

or go to Crucial and use their MacScanner.
it scans your Mac and tells you exactly what memory you can use.
