    Hi everyone, I'm planning to upgrade my white intel iMac (from late 2006) I'm thinking of getting a 1GB stick (or probably even 2GB) - but at this point I'm not familiar with which ones are good brands, a suggestion from my colleagues is getting a brand like Corsair.

    I'm just a little hesitant, as I've been told and I'm not sure if it's a myth of sorts, but if I do upgrade my RAM, would that affect the stability of my machine? If it does that would be not too cool, as everything is working out perfectly - except for the slowing down of my progs while working with several at the same time (I usually use my iMac for most of the Adobe products), now especially since spaces...

    Thanks for in advance!

    crucial is good,upgrading will make things better not worse(keep them in matched pairs) and try not to mix two different makes

    i just ordered 2x2GB for my macbook from crucial

    if your in uk
    www.overclockers.co.uk its cheaper to buy from ocuk than it is from crucial :/

    keeping ram in pairs is good thing to do.

    your statement about the stablity is concering to different ram makes in 1 manchine it can sometimes but rarely cause problems :).
