Hello James Just in case your computer has the door on the bottom I am including a link to an article on upgrading early imacs. Scan down to the bottom of the article and you will see a series of pictures. Click on them one at a time and they will expand giving you a clear idea of what to do. Hope this helps you.

Link to a guide showing how much memory Macs can use.

Maxed out it will run better but not as well as a new iMac.

This is for a M4984 -- not a M5521 and may not be accurate for his computer.

The M4984 has a max ram of 384 MB--the M5521 has a max of 1 GB.

yes I know, but I though that it was almost similar as the change in these iMacs were only hardware updates.

James follow rj link

- "almost similar", just doesn't cut it with computers
