    Damn what a difference. 512mb shouldn't even be an option. Definite night and day difference (especially w/ Parallels). Anyways. Was just curious, is there a good program / utility available that I can download to run a burn-in test on my RAM? I'm not having any troubles at all (atleast not yet), but I figured it may be a good thing to do. Any suggestions?

    1GB to 2GB was great. I wish I could have more, though.

    All the memory is fully tested at the factory, I don't see any point to "burning in the memory."

    I remember getting utilities for that when I had my 8086/286/386, but after that I was kinda like "this is pointless."

    I just did the same recently, upgraded from 1 gb to 2 gb, I think it was only about $50 per 512mb stick.
