Hey Guys (gals)

Sorry about the RAM question, but I'm really unsure about the difference between these two sticks of RAM and whether or not the cheaper one will work in my computer.

I have a iMac G5 1.8GHz (Rev B) and the Crucial website says I should get this stick of RAM

CT407782 (http://www.crucial.com/store/MPartspecs.Asp?mtbpoid=664157E0A5CA7304&WSMD=iMac%20(G5-1.8GHz,%2017-inch)&WSPN=CT407782)

But Newegg.com has this Crucial stick for $98

CT12864Z40B (http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.asp?imodule=CT12864Z40B&WSMD=CT12864Z40B&WSPN=CT12864Z40B#info)

They seem to have the same specs to me... what's the difference between them? And will the cheaper one work in my iMac? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The difference is that Crucial will guarantee its compatability. I don't know what Newegg's return policy is, but if it's good, you could install it, see if it works and hope for the best.

Seems good to me. :)
