If your computer's compatible with 10.8, buy it from the Mac App Store(it won't allow the purchase if the computer isn't.) If not and it has a Core 2 Duo or better CPU, phone the online Apple Store and order a download code for 10.7. If it has a Core Solo or Core Duo CPU, you don't.

The important thing is to know if your iMac can take Lion or Mountain Lion.
Download Mactracker, search for your iMac Model and see what it can have.
From 10.6.8 you can upgrade to Mountain Lion without first upgrade to Lion, IF the iMac can handle it.
