2008 - iMac Software Upgrade

I purchased an iMac back in 2008, am trying to download OS X Mountain Lion however it's saying I can't. What do I need to do!

Those iMacs are limited to 10.6 from memory - their CPU doesn't support the advanced versions of 10.7/.8
Have a look here:

Thank you bartandalison
Do you know if there is a way of increasing their memory!

Can I ask why you want to upgrade to the mountain lion!

Surely you can put another HDD in and more RAM!

You can add more memory, but its probably best to stick with 10.6 - later versions aren't necessarily an improvement especially on old hardware
