RAM upgrade for early '08 MBP?
Hello there,

I am using an early 2008 MacBook Pro and I would like to upgrade the RAM from 2GB to something better, maybe 4GB or 6GB (if possible).

Which brand of RAM do you recommend? I don't want to buy it from Apple in Egypt as the 4GB is way over priced. I guess I'll be buying the RAM online and getting it shipped.

I might upgrade to a whole new MacBook Pro in Christmas if I go to New York, but in the mean time, I'd like better RAM as 2GB isn't good for gaming.

Thank you very much!

Thank you for the link.

I found those:

4.0GB PC-5300 DDR2 667MHz SO-DIMM 200... (OWC5300DDR2S4GB) at OWC
4.0GB Kit (2.0GB+2.0GB) PC2-5300 DDR2 667... (53IM2DDR4GBK) at OWC
4.0GB Kit (2.0GB+2.0GB) PC2-5300 DDR2 667... (53C4DDR2P4GB) at OWC

The price difference isn't major, but I'd like to know what the difference between a kit and a single RAM is? I mean I know the kit is 2GB x 2 but is there a difference in performance? Thank you.
