    With the current Dellf coupons out there, a KINGSTON 1 GB Memory Module Kit can be had for under $130 at Dell. The specs seem right:

    Package Type: 184-pin DIMM
    Logical Type: SDRAM-DDR
    Speed: 400 MHz
    Description: 1GB Upgrade For GA-8IPE1000MT Motherboard
    Features: Non-ECC, Unbuffered, CL3
    Units Required: 2

    but I don't know enough about ram to gamble with screwing up a new Powermac G5 2.5g Dualie.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    It should work. I looked up the Powermac G5 on crucial, and it's 184 pin, PC 3200 DDR RAM. Looks good to me.

    Well, they are the right specs. Make sure it doesn't have components on both side of the stick; the G5 memory only has chips on one side. As long as you can return it if it does work, you can always just buy and try, if you don't mind the hassle of returning it. I bought Crucial for my G5 2.5 DP; works great.
