    Just ordered it from www.macsales.com
    I paid $70 bucks.
    Not bad. I can't wait to see how well it performs after this upgrade.

    Unless you are using memory intensive applications you won't notice much of a difference. Still wise to stuff it full at the current prices though since it *will* eventually be useful.

    Thanks.
    Well I plan to go to school for computers here pretty soon and I think the RAM will help out for virtualizing Operating Systems.

    In that case it will DEFINITELY be useful. OS virtualisation is the biggest memory hog ever. You spent wisely. :)

    Yep indeed does. Final Cut runs great in 12Gig :) Not sure of the OP's apps though. If he is going to run VMware or Parallels then stuff the thing full. But a bit of word processing, iPhoto, light gaming and web surfing that is pretty much what most folks do - the standard 4 gig works fine.
