    Any Canadians purchase mac pro RAM in Canada, and if so, from whom?

    I had the following quote from CanadaRAM:

    "Our RAM has a heavy, flat metal heatsink, the manufacturer is Wintec. It has been extensively tested in MacPro machines, has passed every test, and does not cause excessive fan noise. has tested the Wintec independently, and in stress testing, it
    was within 1 degree of Apple's stock RAM (actually 1 degree cooler in the
    lower riser), therefore well within Apple's temperature guidelines. We
    guarantee compatibility with the Mac Pro, and also guarantee that if the
    machine clocks the RAM down to 533 MHz during normal operation as a result of RAM heat, we will replace the RAM at no charge.

    Certified 61666x2 2048 Mb kit (2x1Gb) $518 per kit *Sale $499 per kit In
    Stock ETA 2 - 5 days by XpressPost"

    I couldn't find any information on this Wintec in Barefeats....

    Does anybody have experience with this actual RAM, and/or CanadaRAM?

    Does anybody have any alternatives in Canada?

    I have had good service from CanadaRAM in the past, for both my additional iMac and iBook memory.

    I've held off purchasing additional memory for my MacPro, simply because their current price for 1Gb (2x512Mb) isn't much cheaper ($353) than Apple's ($360) once you include shipping costs. You get better value/Gb if you buy larger capacity kits, in a spend more to save more way of thinking.
