Hey everyone, thanks for the great advice given here. I'm looking for a little help. I really want to get an 8-core set up (gotta rock the virtualization), but i don't want to pay Apple's prices for RAM (even with the recent drop). I've been shopping around and reading what i can, but i'm a little stumped. What's the problem with buying cheap chips like these from NewEgg or similar? Would there be a performance difference? The price difference is HUGE, and worth the risk, no? Thanks for the help.
