    In the past someone has recommended datamem.com, but I don't have any expierence with them. I have bought from transintl.com, but I don't think they are the cheapest. Be sure to buy from someone who will guarentee it Apple compatible, because a lot of PC memory says it will work, but it won't.

    i would recommend buying rosewill brand memory from http://www.newegg.com
    it's quite cheap and works great in my computer (in sig.) i'm not sure about their non-ddr memory though, and i believe their notebook memory is not so cheap. you didnt say what sort of g4 you have but that might help some people make recommendations.

    dealram.com has always served me well. It's a search engine for finding the best price on mac ram.

    I ended up buying from 18004memory.com and its been fine.

    I have bought from Crucial in the past, but I usually avoid them because they're so expensive. MemoryX sells the exact same modules that you get from Apple, for much cheaper. I've bought from them a couple of times.

    The amount of MHz would be more useful. Powerpc doesn't narrow it down enough. You can find this by clicking the Apple and then clicking About This Mac. Look under processor and then you'll find out how many MHz or possibly GHz your computer has (That's for OS 10.3)

    I went to 3 different sites and they all said that your computer can't support a 1 GB RAM chip. If you want to upgrade to 1 GB your going to have to buy 2 512 MB chips or you could go with 4 256 MB chips. Having 2 512 MB chips is much better. According to those sites your computer can support a maximum of 1.5 GB of memory and your computer has 4 memory slots.
