I have a MacPro with the usual 2x4 memory banks. Had 2x1Gb + 2x4Gb giving me 10Gb but one of the 4's went bad and, as we know, Mac memory has to be paired. So I was left with the OEM 2Gb. I spoke to these guys and they took time to find out from me exactly what the computer was being used for, how much memory I ideally needed and what I was prepared to spend. I intended to buy another 2x4Gb (as previous experience told me that its best to have paired memory from the same manufacturer, and my remaining good 4Gb module was from Crucial - at 50% higher price). However, I acted on an excellent suggestion and went for 8x2Gb and chucked all the good modules that I had in the bin. Seems extreme to chuck expensive memory away but I've ended up with 16Gb RAM with 256bit addressing (which is only available when all 8slots are filled with the same modules). OK, it cost me a bit more money (100 quid more) but I've ended up with a much better solution (and a 40% quicker machine)..... so I'm chuffed to bits. Thanks MrMemory :)
