    If I order the stock standard for the iMac 4GB (2x2) and want to upgrade to 16 through OWC. Is it better to get 16GB total from OWC and try to sell the default 2 sticks of Apple ram or is it better to get 8GB of Apple Ram (2 x 4GB) and fill the rest in with OWC. Also is there any compatibility issues mixing owc ram with apple?

    I had upgraded my iMac when i first got it with Hynix 2x2GB and mixed it with the standard Apple install (Samsung) 2x2GB RAM and it worked no problem, i also have heard around and have friends that have mixed the RAM and its not been a problem.

    Hope this helps!

    Chris!

    Go for whichever is the cheapest, so likely OWC
