Well I finally got some ram for my Mac Pro. I order it from newegg as they had a good price and I also have an account there. I purchased wintec brand memory. I got four 2GB sticks and 2 512 MB sticks. One riser card has the 2 GB sticks and the other one has all the 512 sticks. My system is running smooth. Aperture is running awsome I have over 1600 photos and it runs through the thumbnails like nobody's business. I can recommend wintec as a brand to get. I have had not one issue with it. I've been running about a week now. Here's a link to newegg's page. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ubCategory=551

I feel you on that, It was expensive but you only leave once right. Actually I was going to build a Vista rig but decided to drop alot ram in the Macpro and just run Vista on it and call it even. But oh well I'm a tech snob at least that's what my GF calls me.

I spent the money on the ram because I decided not to build a vista machine just going to run it through boot camp. That way I have the two newest os's at all times.
