Hi chaps

My recent purchased mid -2010 i3 21.5" iMac is fairly pedestrian now I am loading it up with stuff. Time machine and other backups are really slowing it down. It has 4gb memory.

a) what is the best/cheapest place to buy?
b) will I be able to fit it myself or might I really screw things up
c) Is there any point in getting just an extra 2GB?

I'm not actually using anything particularly memory hungry.

Cheers

OK - I seem to have found out:

upgradeable.co.nz looks like a decent price, 69 bucks for 4GB plus postage

What is the deal with buying pairs? Can I just be a 4GB chip to add to my 2 x 2GB or do will it be a lot better to add inpairs and get another 2 x 2GB?

Cheers

As far as I am aware there are only 2 slots, so you have to remove one of the existing RAM cards to fit a new one
