I haven't received my 20" iMac yet and I already have a question. I bought it with 512 RAM. It takes 3GB correct? Can I expect any better performance if I use the dual channel DDR2 over standard DDR2? Does the iMac accept dual channel DDR2?
Would I void my warranty if I upgraded the HD on the iMac? Is it easy to do if I tried?

Yes, you will be voiding your warranty if you replace the HD.

Dual channel is to do with the motherboard, not the memory.

Any 667 DDR2 SODIMM should work.

Can I install the RAM without voiding the warranty?
If not, can I bry RAM and bring my iMac and the RAM to an authorized reseller to install it? Or do I need to purchase their overly expensive brand?
