    If only you asked me about a week earlier. I just sold my 2x4GB Samsung DDR3 modules on Craigslist for $300 together.

    Check eBay out....many sellers have it for like $179/SODIMM and you can get 8% Bing.com Cashback...

    iMac does not support 8GB modules. If you want 16GB, you must get 4x4GB

    so that means 2X4GB is still 8Gb on each ram module correct? cause i think imac 27 has only two memory slots if i am not mistaken

    It has four, so the maximum is 4x4GB, total of 16GB
