    While waiting for my 27in iMac to ship, I went ahead and ordered an additional 4GB of memory.

    I did a search on this, and either didn't search well or didnt stumble across it...

    My question is there any issues with installing the additional memory before powering up the computer for the first time. Or, is it recommended to power it up first, make sure everything is on the up and up, turn it back off and then add the memory.

    Just curious, thanks in advance.

    I would try it first, just to make sure it's not DOA

    I've added the extra memory to my two previous iMacs before initial turn on with no problems and intend to do so when I get my i5 real-soon-now...:)
