iMac memory

wonder if anyone can help with this simple little gem.

my girlfriend has an iMac G4 15" 1Ghz processor with 256MB RAM and a combo drive. we would like to upgrade to 512MB, but i am completely confused as to which module i should buy.

under the system profiler, the spec is: 256MB DDR SDRAM; PC2700U-25330

this would lead me to purchase a similar module to that in my own dual processor G4 mirror-door, but this memory is too long physically. does the PIN number (i.e. 184-pin, 144-pin) denote the length?

i have found several sites all giving different specs (if at all) on the actual memory module, including two specs on the same model of mac. help?
QUOTE Thanks

try or, the g4 imac takes pc 2700 ram, pin number varies in length, but doesnt necessarily denote length, as inches would. I think the mdd g4 takes pc 3200.
