    Hi
    Welcome to MR

    Apple's RAM and hard drive prices are insane - plan on ordering a stock configuration and adding upgrades from a reputable third party dealer.

    You can find answers to most commonly asked questions under the Guides tab at the top of the window

    MR Guide to Understanding Intel mac RAM
    MR Guide to Buying RAM

    When you post, it's good to specify which model and speed of Mac you have.

    Not wanting to offend by promoting "Brand X" here I'd say use a search engine using the terms "mac" and "forum" to find other discussions.

    thanks for the links. i didnt know the ram needed to be set up in "matched" pairs.

    if i bought the 2x(2gb) those would go in A1,B1, and the 2x(1gb) would go A2,B2?

    OR

    is it 2x(2gb) those would go in A1,A2 and the 2x(1gb) would go B1,B2?


    Thanks!

    I spend hours on this place, no need for another forum.
