My first mac -- a Dual 1.8 GHz PowerMac -- is being given to me (so I can't do any BTO options, it's already bought and shipped). It is the stock, base model, meaning it has 256 MB RAM and a crappy Nvidia 5200 video card. I would like to do lots of home-video editing (just iMovie so far, may upgrade to Final Cut Express), graphic design (Adobe everything), and play Blizzard games and UT2004. I was thinking about upgrading the RAM and the video card: - 2x512 MB RAM from Crucial for $160 - Retail ATI Radeon 9800 Mac Special Edition w/256 MB video ram from the ATI web site for $299. I'm most nervous about the Crucial RAM since I've heard mac's need special RAM timing. What do you guys think about this plan? Should I get Apple RAM instead? Is the video card overkill?
