Answer to: RAM - capacity and typeI know this question is old, but if you have an iMac 2006 EARLY (please note EARLY), there is a custom ROM that you can install that will allow you to max it out at 4GB, but only 3+ will be visible. READ all the comments in this link before you decide you want to do this. It is not an Apple supported ROM. http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,...
Answer to: Upgrade The right processor, Core Duo to Core 2 Duo, 20" iMac?The logic board will only go at 667Mhz, so you can upgrade to any 667Mhz Core2Duo, which will max you out at the T7600. As far as the limit on RAM. There has been a custom workaround for this that will let you add more than the 2GB of RAM. The max RAM for any 32 Bit system will be 3GB. Here is the link. Warning: This isnt an Apple written piece of code and you will basically be installing a custom ROM. Read the entire comment section to decide if this is for you.
