    Also, is this good RAM? I've seen the name on the boards. Is there another kind that is better for any reason?

    Yes but really? Mushkin?
    For a mere $13 more I'd get something that you know would work. http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=617B82A2A5CA7304

    Apple, while the specs are the same, seem to be finicky about their ram. Use a **** ram and sometimes the results are bad.

    You say you've seen the name on the boards? Was it being discussed in good or bad light?

    I was just looking at that. I'd rather spend the $13 and not have to deal with any problems. So Crucial would be a much better option?

    Thanks guys! I just cancelled my order through Crucial and ordered it through Amazon and saved over $30. :D

    That is my point. I know Crucial has been DOA (that is the way electronics go from time to time) but the probability of Apple NOT liking the ram is way way small.
