iMac RAM

Hey Folks,

I've tried Crucial and it's saying 220, just wondering if anyone knows anywhere cheaper to get a 32gb kit for an iMac?

Cheers!

David

16GB (4x4GB) costs about 70 I think, so 32GB (4x8GB) for 110 sounds good to me, as I thought that 8GB modules were meant to be much more expensive?

I'm not seeing where you can get 32GB for 110 pounds. It looks like 2 8GB sticks are 102 pounds, and everywhere I've looked has 32 GB kits at around 230 pounds. If you've found it for 110, I might be weary, or buy it immediately if it looks good.

Ramseeker used to be my source of choice for price-hunting. I used to buy primarily through 1-800-4-Memory but went with Crucial this time around.

buying any ram that meets specifications will do the trick. I have done it for the imacs at work with no problems at all.

I prefer Corsair RAM. 4x8gb for $190 @ Amazon.
