View Full Version : G5 Owners- Hey, what RAM you got running?

This is for any and all G5 owners:

1. What Ram is Apple shipping by default?
2. What RAM have you installed yourself, meaning manufacturer, speed, etc.

I ordered my dual with 1GB of ram, and will not be installing any third party ram. If I ever need more, I'll overpay for Apple's ram.

I've orderd my dual with 1 Gig too but i'll be buying at least another 1 or 2 Gig non Apple ram at half or less the price. I've used non Apple ram in several machines with no problems at all (as long as you follow Apple's specs) After all it's not like Apple make their own ram themsevles anyway.

I ordered my dual 2ghz G5 with 1gb of RAM, and bought an additional 1gb from Crucial

I'm still waiting for my G5, however I've got 1gb worth of Corsair RAM to stick in there. That's the brand I always used in my PCs...always worked well.

Kingston is my choice. Don't buy it from their website though, retailers such as circuit city and best buy sell it for around 75 bucks for 512mbs with rebates.
