    Hi Everyone

    First post here seems like a great forum :D

    Got my 27" i7 iMac last week, and I would like to add some more RAM and an SSD, so I thought I would ask here, to see what the best options are for the upgrades.

    RAM wise I was looking at adding another 8GB from Crucial, is this a good choice or should I go for another make?

    For the SSD I have just seen the Crucial CT128M4Solid State Drive2 128GB M4 Solid State Drive on Amazon, would this work ok and again is this a good choice, or should I go for something else?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    I would go for the Vertex 3 SSD, incredible speed and low price.

    Thanks for the suggestion Eddy. Just had a look on Amazon, and would it be the SATA II 2.5" or the SATA III 3.5" that I would need?

    Damn that is going to be scary opening her up! :eek:
    I assume that I can run an SSD along side a regular HD as well?

    Thanks for your help with this.
