    The bus speed is 1066mhz, where are you seeing it listed as 1067mhz?

    I would also recommend either Crucial or OWC. You might be able to find cheap, off-brand memory, but trust me on this... it's not worth the couple of dollars you'll save. Memory problems can be very tricky to nail down and will cause all kinds of weird issues. There's nothing worse than going on a memory-related wild goose chase, trying to keep a machine stable.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    The 1067 is likely rounded up and System Profiler is displaying the actual bus speed, whereas the 1066 rating you see on the memory is the name of the standard.
