    i would get the ram from amazon through crucial, no tax and free shipping.

    not sure about the hard drive.

    Typically the answers are OWC, New Egg, Amazon, Crucial

    New Egg has the Scorpio Blue for $89

    Amazon has the same drive for $100

    Shop around a little and save a few $$$$$

    Edit: Crucial is one of the brand preferred here on MR by the users

    Apple charges a *premium* for their memory
    You are always better off with 3rd party memory

    Crucial or OWC is probably your best bet in that regard
