    They are installed as matched pairs, so you will have two perfectly good one gig chips left over. Keep them, if you ever run into kernel panics, you may need them. And yes, if you are doing heavy design work the extra memory will help.

    I don't know anything about ram sources in the UK, just be aware that saving a few pounds or bucks is nothing if the seller isn't reputable. There are many types, speeds, configurations, sizes of ram. The cheapest stuff may turn out to be very expensive, it may not turn out to be such a great deal!

    Also crucial is fast delivery, at least in the US. My friend ordered the ram Monday night and got the item that Wednesday morning.
