Memory - 1 GB
1 CPU - 1.25 GHz
Thanks for the advice. But don't I need to replace the factory-installed RAM to match, otherwise it does not work?
So, since I can only replace the 512 MB user-installable card, and I'll end up with 512 MB in one slot and 1 GB in the other, what is the effective memory capacity after installation?
If I wanted the full 2GB upgrade, I could replace the SDRAM on the motherboard (I have worked inside computers before and have a pretty good idea what I am doing - including making sure I am properly grounded to avoid ESD effects), but I suppose that replacing the SO-DIMM would be a good start just to see what effect it has. Maybe it would be enough of a boost to avoid opening up the computer.
Thanks! This is a very useful manual. Where should I get the thermal paste? I assume it will need to be replaced.
Is replacing the paste necessary if the existing paste appears to be in good condition?Also, the manual you pointed me to is for the 15-inch and 17-inch iMacs. I have the 20-inch G4-1.25 GHz iMac. Is it still applicable?
