    Hi
    I've got a Mid-2010 iMac with 8gb RAM (2x4gb cards) and 2.93GHz quad core processor. I'm looking at putting two 4GB cards into the bottom slots to bring the total up to 16gb. I was looking at using Crucial's memory choice:

    and going for the 8gb kit. Does anybody have any other suggestions, as I am looking at going for maximium performance, but think this is the best I can buy?

    Thanks in advanced.

    I would always recommend Crucial...never had a problem with them.

    When upgrading RAM, static shouldn't really be an issue (read that I never have)
