My parents recently inherited an iMac G5 1.6 GHz PowerPC. It appears to have two slots for RAM. One of them has a 256MB DDR SDRAM.

 

It is functioning pretty well overall. With its current RAM, Safari is crashing on certain websites, unable to load them. One was aol.com. Most others load fine but take quite some time.

 

 

A couple of questions:

 

How much RAM can each of these slots accommodate? Can I go higher than 256MB per slot?

 

If I max out the RAM in this machine is it likely to function well enough to surf today's websites without crashing?

 

If not is there anything else that would do the trick to make it useable?

 

Thank you in advance for your help.
