    I recently bought a new Mac Pro a few days ago primarily for Video Editing/DVD Duplication purposes. Greatest thing ever.

    What RAM should I use and where can I get it the cheapest??? The base model comes with 3GB. I was thinking of buying 4 GB from Crucial. Is that a good website??

    Any links with good instruction on how to install it???

    Buy from Crucial or OWC. You just put it in; it isn't hard.

    Crucial is good. I use RAMJet for most of my RAM. I'd compare prices with the two and go with the cheapest option.

    I ended up buying 6 gigs from OWC rather than 4 Gigs from Crucial....it was cheaper 10 dollars.

    I have the Quad Core...so what is the best way for me install the 6 gigs??? Do I put 2 gigs in each slot??? Im a little confused.
