    If I can get some suggestions on 16 gig total and what would be the best one I don't think I need 32 gigs. (crucial, kingston...?) which one and if you know why its better. Thanks

    Flip a coin.

    Like others here... I use OWC. I just bought 48GB (16GB for each of 3 iMacs) and it was only $300 total.

    I've always used Crucial. They also have a lifetime warranty. (I think all of the big vendors do.)

    Kingston has been cheap in my experience (not the good kind of cheap). Go with either Crucial or Corsair, both make extremely high-quality memory and have lifetime warranties. Whatever do you, don't be a sheep and overpay for OWC nonsense. Pay the Apple tax to Apple, not OWC. ;)

    I'm rocking these in my 27" iMac:

    And just added these to my wife's 21.5" since they were on sale for $29.99 on Black Friday:
