I'm now at a healthy 8 Gbs for DDR

Congrats! And wow, when did you order? I know neweggs warehouse is in the city of industry, but that is fast!

Sorry it was kinda of confusing. I had ordered from New Egg on Thursday evening but I was skeptical when I went back to look at the specs. I was gonna return it and buy from OWC or Crucial instead but these wound up working perfectly.

My Mac is just zooooooming along. I mean it opened Photoshop very fast. I was surprised at how quick everything opens up. Even Flash opens up faster than Text edit lol. Wow, what a difference RAM Makes on a machine. I didn't think I was gonna see this much impact though.

I didn't even know they were located in City of Industry.

The more RAM the better! It will definitely make a noticeable difference (as you have noticed). Glad everything worked out.

Thank you, Matt and everyone else for all your help. I wouldn't have been able to do it without ya'!!

Oh while I'm at it. Is there any upgrades on my Video, Audio or other components I can do to my machine? What about Cooling units? Anything I can do there as well?
