Christmas is approaching, and I wanted to buy a 512 stick of ram to max out my iMac with 1gb. First, how many slots are there? I have two 256 sticks in there right now, is there a third slot for a 512? Also, would it be better to put the 512 stick in the 1st slot ( which i think is the main slot) and move the 256 stick to the third slot ( if there even is a third slot) Is it okay and fairly save to move factory installed ram? I am buying this ram from I know there are cheaper ones, but I want what apple approves of and I know will work fine with my mac and not have any problems. One more question, I looked in the booklet that came with my iMac where it shows how to install ram and it looks fairly simple, but I've also heard tragic stories of computers getting really messed up by home installs. If i took my computer and ram to my local apple store would they install if for me, and if so, for how much?

Thanks, Jon
