Hi everyone, so i finally received my 2gb ram (2 x 1Gb DDR2 667Mhz). I then went about following the apple book that came with my iMac and removed the 1gb easily (2 x 512mb sticks) and then went about and installed my 2GB ram.

Plugged everything and began booting up and bam it was Quicker than ever!?

I cannot believe what a difference it makes (i knew it would make some difference, but jesus it's massive!)

So anyone still using 1GB upgrade to 2gb if u can!!!!!

BTW does anyone think i'll be able to sell the 2 x 512mb sticks? Or should i not bother because i'll get nothing for them!?

It's sooo easy and also....MAC FTW!

Why don't you just put one of the 512 sticks back in? You would have 2.5GB RAM then.

The iMac only has two slots smurfy, and he's got two 1GB sticks in there.
