    Check your system profiler (Apple icon in menubar > About this mac > more information). The RAM tab should tell you how the RAM is installed. Most probably, it is 1GB x 2 sticks which will fill up your two available slots on the iMac. So if you want to make it 3GB, you have to remove 1GB from there, and put in a 2GB DIMM to make it a total of 3GB.

    Although, you will be sacrificing on Dual Channel mode by doing that (improves performance in many cases). It is best to use RAM in pairs.

    Specs:
    24" iMac, 2.4GHz C2D, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB hard drive, OS X 10.5.1
    Its better to choose the 2.4GHz, upgrade just the CPU and hard drive and then buy 4GB of RAM somewhere else. You'll end up paying the same and getting 2 more GB of RAM.
