    Probably, but you may want to read the reviews. Officially it's not supported, but Newegg has a pretty good return policy. You'd have to paythe shipping to return it though if it doesn't. You may want to spend a bit more on some better RAM though.

    You don't.
    You would have to take the risk it wasn't.
    The only 512 Mb RAM Corsair guarantees Mac compatible is CMSS512MB-400, and NewEgg makes no compatibility guarantee. You're gambling the shipping and return shipping costs whether it is compatible or not.
    You realize this is not a 1 Gb DIMM but a kit of 2 x 512 Mb DIMMs, correct?

    I would suggest that you check the Crucial RAM link above. They have a finder to walk you through the process of finding the proper RAM. They also have a lifetime guarantee. The purchase would also help MacRumors with regards to advertising.

    I bought some crucial ram from Newegg, two 512 sticks for $42 dolllars a piece when I got my dual 2.0 g5 and the ram has worked great. I recommend finding the ram sticks on the crucial site and than just getting it from newegg if you are looking to get ram cheaply.

    As a poster mentioned above, check the reviews on newegg. I look for memory that has a lot of reviews (30+) and then search for Mac or Apple on the page. Usually you will find several reviews from Mac users who give their reports of how it works with their machines. I buy 95% of my memory from newegg and I have never been disappointed.
