Ram Question

I'm looking into upgrading the ram in my g5 when it arrives but I'm unsure of what brand of ram to get. I'm looking at either getting crucial or kingston. I've heard great things about crucial and kingston, so the question of either of them being quality ram is not an issue, and the fact that crucial is MUCH cheaper than kingston is attractive, but overall is there a clear winner here? My friend uses kingston and swears by it, but if both are quality ram, then I'd rather save a few bucks and go with crucial as I've heard nothing but good things about them on the forums.

Thanks for your time!

I think being careful and using Mac only RAM is the safest. I know someone looking for RAM upgrade on an old Mac with 16 (2x 8mb simms) now. Any ideas?

DON"T BUY APPLE RAM TOO EXPENSIVE.

Just go to Crucial.com, half the price and they have a system that you will get the correct ram if you know what computer it is.

I might consider looking at Crucial, but I may well get any upgrades from Apple to be safe. RAM that isn't right can cause problems
