    Ok - so I ordered the imac and now I want to order the RAM so I can put it in when it arrives. Anyone have recommendations on where to buy the RAM? Thanks.

    I love newegg. I spent so much money there yesterday.
    Macmall.com is good too :apple:

    It depends on where you are located. In Canada, I use memoryhouse.com, directcanada.com, onhop.ca and nxsource.com

    They are usually pretty close to each other, but they often often have shipping promotion and sales. Also, companies located in BC often don't charge provincial tax for Ontario.

    Thanks HBOC I'll check it out today. Going to buy it this week. I'll probably go with Crucial if simply because they tell you exactly which RAM to get. I found the same in other brands after I matched it with the Crucial but because they were kind of enough to tell me what matched my system I might as well give them my business.

    Other World Computing

    I have used Other World Computing, www.macsales.com. I find they have the best prices for the highest quality memory. They are also a great place for Hard Drives. Great customer service as well.

    well my friend, 4Gb for $53 and change, I'd go with OWC and I have. When the Quad Cores are introduced this MWSF, I'll be upgrading my iMac with their recommendations

    As some other posters have stated, Best Buy, MacMall, Mac Sales, and New egg are good.
