Yes, I had seriously underestimated Crucial's RAM prices! I don't know where I got the £50 figure from - I must have misread it on their site. Your idea is a good one, though. Even at nearly triple...

Wow, that was fast!

I'm relieved about the GPU. How much RAM would you say is necessary for Final Cut Pro? I don't want to buy any more than I need.

Sorry to hear that, mate. I had two 20" iMac Core Duos with the same problem, and I sent them both back for a refund. It's a shame, because otherwise the iMac is a near-flawless machine. :cry:

Unfortunately, I don't have the space for two displays. :(
