First time buying RAM for a Mac

I just got a 27" iMac and I'm about to purchase some RAM. I'm not seeing much as to what I should get. Anybody have any thoughts on this http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Value...I28VUUUQOONN4T recommend something else???

Thanks for the site. That is inexpensive but I'm hoping to get it from Amazon since I have prime and will be able to have it in hand by Monday. That site only has one recommendation and it's for 16gb.

Just get it from crucial.com.

I ordered 32 GB a monday and got them in my mail box on thursday the same week and that's ordering from their UK site and I'm living in Sweden. So yeah, four days delivery time isn't that bad to be honest.

Kingston's Value RAM should be avoided at all costs. Just about any other brand and/or model would work fine. Kingston's Value RAM line has caused many problems with Macs, although it's attractive due to the price it should be avoided. I would also recommend Crucial or OWC (www.macsales.com) for their service however personally I bought G-Skill RAM for my recently purchased iMac, it has been working perfectly.
