Hi, I have a quad G5 Power Mac and would like to drop an extra 4 GIG of RAM in my machine. Do I have to use Apple's memory sticks or can I use generics? Thanks in advance!

You can use any ram that meets the machines requirements. I have and have used Corsair in two different Macs, a G5 and a Mac Pro and it worked just great. And i might add at half the cost of Apple ram... Just get a quality ram with a good warantee, don't try for the off brand el cheapie stuff.

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