    Either one of them should work. I'm guessing you have 512mb in there...if so and you get either one of theese gig sticks you'll be flying man. 1.5gb should be great.

    Heat spreaders are just basically for overclocking. On your iMac once you add the ram you won't need to overclock so it wouldn't make much of a difference.

    It's alright, it doesn't make a difference. Only the RAM you got if it was in a PC it could overclock. The heat spreaders just help the ram cool down.
