    Question Need to buy RAM for my iMac, HELP!
    Hello Everyone...

    I am about to get a new iMac and so I am thinking about upgrading the RAM from 1GB to 2GB or so. I heard from my friend it is pretty easy...

    Here is my question...What BRAND of RAM should I buy? What does Apple use? I heard Apple uses all kinds from IBM to whatever....

    THANKS! Oh...and if you looked at this post but did not answer, why did you look? punk!

    You can buy reliable RAM from many places at varying degrees of value, but I strongly suggest OWC:

    Apple iMac Memory Upgrades and Video Installation Guides - Get the right memory for your G3, G4, G5, or Intel iMac Model at

    Great customer support, mostly competitive pricing, and lifetime guarantee. They'll even give you a (small) rebate for your old RAM, and if your new RAM goes bad they'll ship you a replacement before you even return the bad.

    Current: 20" iMac 2.4/4/320/Leopard / Dell 2407WFP / Leopard
    Portable: 12" PowerBook G4 1.5/1.25/80/Tiger / iPhone 3G White 16GB
    Former: PowerMac G5 Dual 1.8 / iMac G4 800 / iBook G3 700 / PowerMac 7500, 3G iPod 10GB, 5G iPod 30GB

    I just upgraded from 2G to 4G, it was a 5 minute job.

    Get 4G of ram, my iMac is 1 year old and it started to feel it needed more ram

    I got Kingston Ram, matched pair. Being in Australia this was the cheapest.

    I know Other World Computing is really good and I would have bought from them but the Australian Dollar just tanked to $0.65USD from $0.97USD a month or so ago.

    Great! Thanks so much. One question though:

    I just went to their website and to upgrade to 2GB, do I need to order the 2GB or just the 1GB, since I already have 1GB?

    Sorry! I am very new to this stuff!
