    Looking to buy another gig of RAM for my new G5 dual 2.7. Has anyone bought RAM from http://macramdirect.com? Any comments or suggestions where to buy RAM from are much appreciated. I know the G5 is picky with RAM and thats why I'm posting :) Thanks!

    They are guaranteeing compatibility and have a lifetime warranty, that's good.

    They also claim that they sell Samsung Apple Factory Original RAM (as an extra cost option), that just is not correct. Apple does not use Samsung RAM in their G5's exclusively, nor even primarily. Apple uses Hynix, Micron, IBM, Elpida and some Samsung depending on which month it is. It is a sure bet that they are not selling RAM purchased from Apple.

    Google is your friend: all of the below information is publicly searchable:

    The Web domain was registered in 2001, which is good (there's some history)

    You can inquire with the Better Business Bureau whether they are members, and if there are any outstanding issues.
