Hey all...

I was wondering whether anyone may have a good website for purchasing a 1GB stick of RAM for my Intel 20" iMac?

Has anyone seen good deals on these sticks lately?

I am staying far away from buying from apple.ca.

I am in Canada (Ottawa) if that matters.

Thank you......

Thanks...

I checked out the site but I am unsure what brand to buy....I know I need DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) but there are several types.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

I used Patriot and it worked perfectly. I've also heard some people on here have had luck with G.Skill.

Does the memory have to be PC2-5300? or does PC2-5400 work as well in an iMac?

Thanks!

I don't know if anyones tried this to see if it's being honoured, but Omni technologies website is showing 2 x 1GB Hyperformance RAM for $179.95 at the moment! Considering that's their price for a single 1GB stick it must be a mis-print so I'd buy before it gets pulled!

g.skill works just fine for me. I added a 1 gig stick to match the gig it came with. 70$ on newegg.

Does anyone think there would be a noticeable performance difference with the Hyperformance RAM from Omni? It's CL2.5 as opposed to the CL4 / CL5 stuff from newegg / g.skill etc...

Can the iMac actually benefit from the faster timings or is that all myth?

New Egg is a great spot to shop. They usually have whatever you want and most times have the best prices. For example 667 ram for the Mac Pro 2 gigs of Kingston for only $350 as compaired to over $600 from Apple.

I have dealt with them for years and their service and warentees and shipping have always been first rate. Unfortunatly unless they have changed recently they do not ship outside the United States.

Mac Pro Intel 2.66 - 4 Gigs Ram - 10.6.1 - 30" Apple Monitor
iMac 24" 2 gigs ram - MacBook Pro
