    I have searched this up and looked on the Apple website but I am just getting confused, I have the late 2009 21.5" iMac, it has a stock 4GB of RAM, and I want to add another 4/8GB Ram in it, Can anyone tell me which is the cheapest (but good) Ram to get for my Mac?

    Thanks.

    Newegg offers 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM 1333 MHz 4 GB modules for quite a low price. It is best to get it in pairs, thus two 4 GB modules should work quite okay. You could also buy four 4 GB modules for less than 60 USD nowadays (two 8 GB kits).

    On the Apple website is says they need to be 1066MHz, or does it not matter?

    thanks for your help.

    You can also get 1066 MHz RAM, but 1333 MHz will also work. I have a 2009 MBP, that came with 1066 MHz RAM but uses 1333 MHz RAM now.
