It's best to replace with the brand you have.

Model iMac Intel Model with a Pioneer Drive already fitted. May not fit properly if HL, Panasonic or Sony Drive already fitted in your iMac as drive bezel / mounting plastic will be different from a Sony one. The bezel can be made to fit any drive by cutting off 2 dimples of plastic on the back edge of the bezel though.

Mine is The Pioneer DVR-TS08PB Apple Part# 678-0573C

also listed are:

Manufacturers ID: Sony AD-5670S 678-0575E Pioneer DVR-TS08PA 678-0573

will i have to open mine up to determine this?


You don't have to open it. Go under the Apple in the upper left hand corner to "about this Mac". Click on "more info" > Hardware > ATA. This should give you a description of the optical drive.
