I forget which size the SSD is.
Consumer SSDs are all 2.5" or smaller. The most common SSD size is 2.5". They have the same form factor as 2.5" laptop drives and the same connector as 3.5" and 2.5" SATA drives. 2.5" drives can be mounted in a 3.5" slot using an adapter. Newer portable devices may use a 1.8" SSD.

Oh ok. I have the plastic adapter too. Once I have it all backed up I think I'm gonna yank it apart

From your description it sounds like you are running the iMac desktop version of the same hardware Apple used in my beater MacBook Pro from that era. If so, 3 GB with PC2-5300/6400 is doable.

The MacTracker application for OS X or iOS from Ian Page is a great resource to tell you quite quickly what is the real maximum configuration for your particular machine, as opposed to the official Apple maximum.

My MacBook Pro built the last week of June 2008 is still going strong running Yosemite with a Samsung 840 EVO and 6 GB of RAM.

Kind of rare these days but keep your eyes open for a PC2-6400 4GB SODIMM to max out the machine.
