Hey guys, new here! Never been a Mac owner, but have used it over the years....G5's to be exact. Not really a Mac nut (Yet!!) but have been around computers longer than I remember... Anyways, enough with the introduction. The system I chose was a Dual Quad Core, but I chose 1GB RAM because Apple seems to think that we're all pooping money here and charges us double of what others charge...sure it says "Premium" parts, but $116 for a 500GB drive (Should be $20, since 250GB is default)?? $2,000 for 8GB of RAM???? Anyways, I've been reading this forum and others, and I came across Crucial so far...as well as OWC RAM. I am looking for 4x2GB sticks, so I can upgrade to 16GB later on as needed. Now, OWC and Crucial seem to have the same price (about $900?)...so which to pick? Or none at all? I'm too lazy to buy RAM and stick heatsinks myself (that's why I'm going the Mac route in the first place) but I don't mind sticking new RAM in there, it takes a few seconds. Also, once I get either RAMs (or any other) should I keep the 1GB that came with it as well? It won't bother the 8Gb's in there? Thanks for any help! Appreciate your replies.
