Hi Guys,

I have an Imac G3 333 MHZ 9.2Os
What kind of memory do I buy to upgrade it ?
I was told SD Ram but when I go to the store to purchase they tell me I am wasting my time ??? is this true

Can I buy any SD Ram?

Thanks

Angelle

Hi

The G3 iMac takes any PC133 SDRAM, with a max of 512Mb in each of the two slots.

I suspect the people at the store were being unkind and meant you might be wasting your time upgrading such an old machine. Sorry!

Obviously, the store personnel are idiots.
Upgrading the RAM is probably the single best thing you could do to an older G3 iMac. It certainly is not a waste of time.
