    Just wondering what you're opinions might be on a new HD for my dual 2.7 powermac. I keep reading a lot of people go with the seagate drives because of the warranty, while others feel better with the hitachi drives. I'm looking at the 300gb-500gb range.

    Also, anything I should know before doing the upgrade. Seems like a simple deal. My RAM is still stock with 512mb, which I'll hopefully be throwing down for at least 1gb more, maybe two as soon as I get back from NY in two weeks.

    thanks for any advice, I appreciate it!

    ill agree with that suggestion, i bought 6GB of ram from OWC for my dual 2.7 Powermac. and it works wonderfully.

    I haven't yet added a hard drive, as apple was kind enough to upgrade me to a 400GB 7200rpm drive w/o tellin me :) ( i love those refurbished surprises )

    Definitely go for more RAM amemoryoncelost. 512MB of RAM is not enough to fully enjoy Mac OS in my opinion. :)

    The RAM that macgeek2005 showed you looks like a good way to go. :)
