    Just a thought, since the new powermac dual 2.0's have only 4 slots for ram could you still up it to 8 gigs by putting 2 gig sticks in each of the slots? :confused:

    1) There are no 2 Gb, non-stacked, non-ECC unbuffered DIMMs available.

    2) Apple's spec maxes out at 1 Gb per module, there is no indication that the memory controller can read RAM above the spec (although in rare cases Apple had under-written the spec such as on the iMac G4 DDR machines, where a 1 GB module worked when Apple initially said only 512).
