    I would keep it. You're not going to get a whole lot for the 8GB of used RAM anyway. And if you find down the road that you're getting Kernel Panics or whatever, the first thing Apple will do is blame the RAM you put in. Better to keep in case you do need to troubleshoot something like that.

    I would also keep it, the reason being is you can keep it to use for diagnostics in the event you have RAM related issues with your new RAM.

    They won't void your warranty because you have 3rd party RAM installed (it's a user replaceable part on all but the recent 21"s. They just won't (obviously) cover any ram related issues (although the genius bar will normally help you troubleshoot).

    You don't need to keep the old ram for warranty purposes.
