    Most things that seem to good to be true generally are which is the reason for this post. Does anyone know about this ram:Corsair Memory
    XMS2 DHX 4GB PC-6400 DDR2 Memory Kit
    . Seems like a good price which has me worried. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Error Correction Code Non-ECC


    The Mac Pro can't use that memory. It must be ECC.

    Thank you, where's the best place to find the cheapest ram. They all seem to be pretty comparable?

    those aren't even the correct type of ram for a mac pro- you need FB DIMMs. Those are plain DDR2.

    Go to www.macsales.com they have the cheapest best ram. I got 4Gb's for $160 and they are working great! You really dont need to worry about Qualified over Certified, they work the same and Qualified is alot cheaper and has the same heat sinks. thats your best bet right there.:D:apple: also what Mac Pro do you use? if its anything pre 2008 Mac Pro's should be 667MHz ECC FB-DIMM, 800MHz ECC FB-DIMM is the new mac pros.
