    Memory upgrade
    I am looking to buy a 1 gig stick or memory assumming it will take it, I just bought last week a G5 Intel iMac.

    What memory do i get from it as not spending 200 from apple, where I could get it elsewhere for a lot cheaper.

    Also is the 1gig im my mac 1 stick or 2 512?

    Specs:
    2.16 GHz Intel Imac Core 2 Duo//MacBook 1.83 Core 2 Duo//G5 Power Mac
    No there is not a third slot, just the two.

    Specs:
    MPB c2d 2.16ghz, 2gb RAM, 120gb Harddive
    it can hold potentially 4 but the procesor can only support 3 if i understand correctly. so 1x1gb stick and 1x2gb stick.

    I've got my eye on some ram from Crucial.com. The most important thing is to make 200% sure the ram you are thinking of buying matches exactly with all the specs that your Intel Mac has.

    Do me a favour timboellis1, go to the blue apple icon and scroll to 'About This Mac' and post what it says for Processor and Memory.
