    Just been lucking at ram on owc :eek: its soo cheap, how can they do it?
    and its a real shame they dont ship world wide because for my iMac(see sig) 2gb of ram from owc costs $249.99 (thats 133£) but in the uk from crucial it costs £397.14 thats outragous

    Yeah, I know:mad:

    If you find a cheap reliable source of guaranteed Mac memory here in the UK, be sure to post it here. I've yet to find one...

    www.scan.co.uk offer Corsair Value RAM quite cheap. Many people on here have it and love it and i am the same. It is reliable and low cost.

    Just ordered this from maxupgrades.com

    Items Ordered
    -----------------
    MaxSink: HeatSink for Fully Buffered DIMM Memory Module (#SZ-FB667ECC512MBX2): 1
    Options: 1GB kit (512MBx2) Matched Pair:Fully Buffered:pC2-5300:ECC:DDR2-667:240pin DIMM w/MaxSinks: $239.00
    Item Total: $239.00

    ====================

    Subtotal: $239.00
    Shipping (U.S.P.S. Express International Service): $18.00

    Works out at £138. A lot cheaper that anything here in the UK, even if I get stung for the Vat.
    Will let you know how it goes, but have seen good reports on this ram, and if all goes OK, will be ordering more from them.

    I was just going to say that OWC ought to ship to the UK, since I had something sent to me here in Korea (firewire box).
    I liked dealing with OWC--there was a little monkey business with the wire transfer (damn those banks) that has subsequently kept me from ordering again.
    However, I just may be ordering a fw800 box and 2GB ram stick to go with my incoming 24" iMac.
    Anyway, OWC gave me very good service.

    Just a little heads up, OWC have dropped their 2x1GB prices twice over the past 3 days down to $259.00 USD. A sign that the RAM demand has finally dropped. :D
