    Installing own memory when buying a new Mac Pro
    Hiya. I am very keen to buy a Mac Pro. I am not so keen spending 960 GBP upgrading from 2GB to 8GB memory ("800MHz DDR2 fully buffered ECC memory").

    Could I just request the 'standard' 2GB when buying the Mac Pro then purchase the extra 6Gb myself for a much cheaper solution? If so:

    1. What web sites (UK) can you recommend for memory?
    2. Is it an easy install process?
    3. Are there any gotchas doing this?

    Thanks, Cam

    Yes, it's very easy. Just like installing ram on a windows machine, pop it in and go. Refer to your manual to know what slots to install in. I bought from http://www.transintl.com/store/categ...estTimeOut=500 and left a review (as Geruvah) here: http://www.resellerratings.com/store/transintl

    If I remember correctly, their memory has a lifetime warranty and the heat sinks are ok-ed by Apple.

    I hate mac zealots as much as windows/other OS zealots.
