    so i just got the new 2.7Ghz 27" imac and am looking to upgrade its memory.

    is it ok to add an 8GB Kit (4GBx2) from a third party in the free slots and leave the original 4GB Kit (2GBx2) from apple? or do i have to replace the original memory with the new one?

    thanks for any help

    You can add the 8GB to the stock memory, it will work just fine.
