    Factory installed 1GB. Need two 2GB chips. MacMall has to many to choose from. I want the fastest most reliable least expensive for most quality.

    Do I have too go to the Apple store to buy it, or are the varieties here reliable.

    Google CanadaRam.com. out BC. They were super cheap and exactly what memory my Imac needed. I think they specialize in Apple equipment.

    Brand and Specs

    My problem is not where to find it but what kind to buy. I am looking for someone to tell me specifically what kind to get for my Aluminum iMac 2.4 ghs 20".

    There may be hundreds of posts about it, but none answer my specific question.

    I need a brand recommendation . Axiom, Kingston, Future Memory Solutions, Mushkin etc.
    I need spec recommendation PC2-5300 ? PC2-6400 ? Mhz ???

    This one? Kingston Self-Installed Memory Upgrade - 4GB (2 x 2GB ) PC2 6400 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM 200-pin SODIMM

    This one? Axiom Memory Solutions 4GB PC2-6400 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM Fully Buffered DIMM (FB-DIMM) Kit for Mac Pro

    I really don't know which brand which item, there are so many?

    So far no problems. I purchase several things from them without an issue.
