Just pick your make and model on the front page from the drop down menu in the middle and they will tell you exactly what you need.

Probably not the best priced but you know for sure it will work with your system and they are a reputable company unlike some no name ram that might fail. I live by the motto you get what you pay for. Pay now or pay later. Know what I mean?

I've bought ram from OWC for many years and have only had one bad stick. Good return policy, no questions asked. (You have to pay return postage) They are one of the cheaper places to buy from.
I don't have any extra $, so I'm willing to take the chance. To me, it is like the insurance that stores always try to get you to buy…I never buy it and I've never needed it. The salesperson can never give you the statistics on the % of buyers that have to use the insurance.

I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know who holds tomorrow.
