    Alas, I need more RAM.
    How much would it cost to upgrade my iMac from 1GB RAM to 2GB, and how would I go about doing so?

    LOL this is weird, i just removed my 1gb (2x512mb) and replace them with 2gb (2x1gb sticks) today! it's pretty simple, the little book that came with your iMac shows you (in the small box above the install disks - Page 33 i think).

    It is pretty simple......I now have 2Gb! Only took me a few minutes to replace them!

    Does it really make that much of a difference in terms of speed?

    Depends what it is you are doing. For basic computing, e-mails, internet surfing....No Running games and heavy programs....yes

    You can also sell your 512mb sticks on ebay, and make back some of the cost of upgrading.

    What kind of computing do you do? As MaDDoG said, if you're just doing the basics, you won't need more than a gig. Photo / video editing, webpage building, or doing music in garageband will require more rams. Your cat should be able to upgrade it for you. If you don't have a cat... you're screwed.

    I use www.komplett.ie , but then again I am in Ireland.

    But I think they have international sites. Its pretty cheap and its all good quality stuff they have.

    crucial is also very good ram but a little pricey. new egg has the cheaper prices and that is probably your best bet
