    But samsung ram is expensive.....

    1gb of samsung ram costs about $100 bucks more than this ram...

    this ram is super cheap and that's why I was wondering if it would work...?

    or if it is a bad idea because it might not be very good quality..?

    Really, don't buy generic crappy ram. You will wish you paid the extra money later.

    Go for "Value" ram from a good company. Crucial is a safe bet.

    Second that last post.. bad ram will cause you plenty of mysterious kernel panics in the future.. and you will so regret getting it.
