Look no further than the banner ad at the top of the page!
Crucial are the guys, everywhere is about the same price these days.

Well it says "major brand", which is very honest really! Still, no reason to doubt it's ok, because they are a reputable company.

Yes that RAM is fine, any PC133 RAM will do the job.

Help yourself to as much information as you need from Mactracker or Mac Specs, Prices, Answers, & Comparison @ EveryMac.com - Est. 1996 I warmly recommend the first resource for learning how to upgrade and enhance your older iMac.

And all PC133 memory will not work in your Mac. You need to make sure it fits the specifications and is low density. PC's as a rule use high density memory which is cheaper. This is precisely the specs and type of memory:-

These Mac systems can get tricky when it comes to SDRAM. CL settings and chipset issues are common. I went with the guys at Computer Memory upgrade,Laptop Memory,PC Memory RAM DDR DDR2 Memory and havent been dissapointed.
