Hello everyone.

Well... my Mac needs a RAM upgrade. It currently has 256 MB of SDRAM. I came here in order for some suggestions as to what kind of RAM I should buy. I don't know very much about hardware... but from all the sites I've seen, it looks like Macs need a specific kind of RAM. My computor's processor is 800MHz and is a iMac PowerPC G4 (if you need this info...). I found a company called Omni that sells RAM... but I haven't heard of them before.

I'm desperate... if you you can give me any help as to where to buy RAM I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks.

Also check out Newegg, they usually have some great prices on hardware.

I did a search for RAM using SpindleX's criteria:

144-pin SO-DIMM PC 133 RAM

Well on the same topic. Does anyone know any good places to get imac C2D 1GB ram sticks from? Yeah I want 2 of them so I can double the factory standard memory I have.

Australian places would be nice. But US ones that will allow me to order from them and ship to Australia are ok too.

And thanks.
