If you are not utilizing the 512 MB you have now to its fullest extent, an upgrage is not going to have any noticeable improvement. Also, if you are not doing daily, heavy professional level use of video editing, graphics work, photo manipulation...etc., then you are likely to never see the benefit of 2 GB of RAM.__________________________________________________

In my G4 iMac, I noticed a big difference going from 768MB to 1.5GB of RAM.Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

I had my imac g5 2.o ghz upgraded from 512 to 2 gigs. My friend went to one gig in his.. I do some video editing but we don't notice to much of a difference. It is nice to know you have it if u ever need it though. I bought my 2 1gb sticks here...www.chiefvalue.com. Its the cheapest you can find ram.

I went from 256 to 512 to 1GB. I did notice a difference when running a lot of apps at once and especially when using iMovie. So it all depends on how much RAM you are currently using. You should check how much you are currently using to see if its really worth it.
