Memory upgrade for early 2008 iMac

Hi

 

I have an early 2008 iMac with 1Gb of RAM. (Type = DDR2 SDRAM, 800 MHz).

I'm currently running Snow Leopard.

 

I would like to increase the RAM as much as I can, with a view to upgrading the o/s some time in the future.

 

Your website has recommended a 4GB kit (2GBx2) DDR2 PC2-6400 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.8V 256 Meg x 64 (CT3331888).

 

Does this sound reasonable? Will it increase my RAM to 5GB, or does it replace my current 1GB?

 

Any advice is welcome.

 

Thanks.

Hi gwd440,

 

Thanks for contacting us. I pulled up the part that you are looking at it and it does look like the best upgrade for your system. This upgrade would replace the current memory you have. Your system can only use 4GB and has two slots for the memory. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Thanks again
