If you go to RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, SSD at Crucial.com it can scan your system and give you the options...

Whilst Apple advise 4GB, OWC and other suppliers will tell you it can handle 6GB. Anything over the 2GB will be a boost.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
