    Currently running 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3 on a 2.66 GHz i7

    Want to upgrade to 8GB of RAM & my understanding is that I have 2 slots for ram therefore I must buy 8GB (4GBx2) to fill the slots...

    I'm told I need to match the 1067 to the new RAM I purchase - can't find any 1067s on newegg

    On amazon, I have these two options:

    In this one, the product title ends in 1067 but that does not necessarily confirm that it is in fact 1067 MHz: http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-CT2CP...=1347382580&sr=8-1&keywords=8gb+1067+mhz+ddr3

    For this one, it is a 'parts quick brand' instead of a brand like kingston that I recognize: http://www.amazon.com/PC3-8500-1067...=1347382580&sr=8-2&keywords=8gb+1067+mhz+ddr3

    What should I do?

    1067 and 1066 are the same. It's just that one is rounded up and the other has the .6 removed from the end.

    That is desktop ram for the Mac Pro. You need the smaller laptop kind.

    It's in the sub-category under Memory.

    Here is the Mac certified RAM:

    Also look under the other laptop RAM, it's essentially the same as the 'mac certified' RAM but without the inflated cost.
