I need help to speed up my iMac, and I am not sure which bit needs tweaking. If I try and open a video link from a webpage, the content takes too long to load before you can actually watch the clip. I have to pause the video to wait for the load to "catch up" on itself...surely there must be a cure for this? The HD size is 500GB, with a 2x1GB Memory, and an NVIDIA GeForce 8800GS (512mb) graphics card. Do you think I need to upgrade? Cheers JK
