Red face I've been looking EVERYWHERE for Mac Pro RAM

Which computer shop / online RAM store in Canada (preferably Toronto-based) carries "667MHz DDR2 fully buffered ECC memory"?

I'm having a hard time finding it in the GTA

MacDoc? CanadaRAM? Any help?

try emailing them as they ship. There is also london drugs, compusmart, and your typical small apple retailers

I went to several shops and no luck. They I was in Kitchener on business and I found Carbon mac store and they not only had the ram they confirmed what I needed, installed and tested it while I was still in the store. Customer service is king and I must say I was very impresed as I stopped in over lunch and the tech was out on lunch.

I belive there is a Carbon in Toronto as well.

Tiger Direct has it. I notice alot of people only stick to the Mac stores, I find that to be too limiting and pricey. I get my ram from PC stores. Everybody and their uncle sell PC stuff, so I find pricing on stuff like Ram, Hard Drives and Optical drives to be a little better. I personally don't care if my stuff is Apple branded, that doesn't change the technology.

It's not just having "667 FB-DIMMs" It's also testing them and guaranteeing compatibility with the Mac Pro.

A good Mac-aware reseller will offer a Mac compatibility guarantee and a no-cost (no shipping, no restocking charge ) replacement or refund policy if they do not work. A PC retailer or an online discounter most often will not.

It doesn't have to be Apple branded to work, but unless you choose a Mac-aware reseller, the time and trouble of testing and risk of shipping and restocking costs is down to you.

You may be good with that to save a couple of bux, but if you're not a Mac-adept, then you may want the assurance from the seller that the RAM will work.

Generic RAM is BAD. Macs have enough trouble with good RAM let alone bad RAM.

I'd rather buy certified Mac tested RAM with a great warranty. To each his own.

Normally I'd say that any 3rd-party RAM retailer would be okay, but with the Mac Pro you have to be especially careful - you don't want to shell out for 4GB of RAM only to find out that the heatsinks weren't up to the job. Get the RAM from an outlet that can prove it will work properly.
