Hi, um I'm in a bit if trouble here. I just sold my mac on ebay. The problem is that I said it had 16GB of RAM. I have 2 GB right now, but I had called fry's before I put it on ebay to see how much RAM would cost so I could install it when my mac sold. They said 16GB would be $380. However, turns out that is for RAM that is not "full buffered." So I buy the RAM and it doesn't fit. I go back to fry's and finally a salesman tells the others that I need fully buffered RAM which ends up being $1400 after taxes. So my question is, is there anywhere online I can buy 667 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM RAM for less or am I going to eat that extra grand? I only blame myself for not being absolutely sure and trusting the frys staff. I'm supposed to meet this lady tomorrow, but if I can order tonight and have overnight shipping for the day after tomorrow I'm fine I think. Any help will be much appreciated thank you.
QUOTE Thanks

Tell the seller the problem and see if you can get out of the deal. Give him his money back and resell it. That should be a very easy thing to do.

$900 for 16GB at OWC - Link
