Does anybody have a positive (or negative) recommendation for an online or retail (in Toronto) location to buy ram from. I need a one gig stick of PC3200, unbuffered, nonparity, 184-pin, 400Mhz DDR SDRAM for a rev B imac G5.
Thanx in advance.
Give Trevor (CanadaRAM) a call and get a quote, and know that your quote is on a very good quality stick, that is known (not "believed to be") compatible with your machine, with solid support before, during and after the sale.
Although there are a lot of people who swear by generic PC memory there are also a lot of people who suffer from random crashes and general flaky behaviour. RAM can be the cause of those problems and it's very difficult to diagnose which means you just live with it. It's fairly clear that PPC Macs do not tolerate poor quality or intermittent fault (bad addresses) memory modules well.
Some people prefer to live with it, while I prefer to do all I can to eliminate RAM from the list of likely causes, and live without it.
So, even if you choose another vendor, be sure to do your homework and choose one that backs their memory products without hesitation.
