    Hello all,

    I've been reading all this news about the upcoming VPC 7 and how it's supposed to have native graphics support. That got me very excited, because I have a bunch of PC games that I've been longing to play on my Mac for a while. Up until now, I was thinking of getting another 512MB stick to put into my 12" Rev. B PB to add up to 768MB. (My sig says I already have that, it's anticipating the future :) ) Now I'm thinking I should go with a 1 GB stick instead. I have a 200GB 7200 RPM External HD with which I will use to run VPC and Final Cut Express.

    So which one - 512MB stick or 1GB stick? :confused:

    Thanks a lot,
    JOD8FY

    LOL, that's (a variation of) what I'd figured you'd say... :rolleyes:

    Does anyone know where to get a good quality 1GB stick for a good price? I checked Crucial already and theirs is over $400. I might have to bite the bullet, but does anyone have any advice?

    Thanks a lot,

    You will find that there is a BIG! jump from a 512Mb stick to a 1Gb (thinking that 1Gb should cost about the same as two 512Mb stick) they will drop in price but i dont think they will any time soon. Also with the coming of DDR2, DDR may drop in price?
