Forget trying the 10 GB option.

10 GB will work, but I would recommend using matching sets of RAM. Ordering an 8GB kit (2x4) would probably be the best option if you don't want to spend the money on 2x8GB sticks.

Thanks, but I went the safe route and ordered the recommended Crucial RAM from Amazon Warehouse for $56.

Great decision... getting the dual 2 x 4GB (8GB) kit of Crucial RAM is an excellent choice. I ordered the 2 x 8GB (16GB) kit direct from Crucial after I bought my mid-2011 Mini and I have had no regrets since and haven't looked back.
