    My new G5 has only has 512mb ram and I wanted to upgrade it to at least 2GB. But its going to cost a big chunk of money. Why the heck is the G5 ram so expensive?
    Its not like its very powerful ram since the newest pc ram is PC-4400/550MHZ

    Don't buy RAM from Apple. Get it from Crucial, Kingston, etc. instead.

    By the way, why is this in the "gaming" section? :confused:

    No one says that you have to buy from Apple. So I see no issue.

    You should also check out OWC, they have great prices and service also.

    OWC's ram is terrific! It scores much higher on xBench than other brands of ram.
