    I'm not really interested in the RAM, but just out of curiosity, did you notice a decent performance increase? I'm thinking about yanking out the 512 that came with mine and installing 2gigs :hs:

    ebay?


    Oh and yes definitely a huge performance increase. I dont have photoshop yet but ive been using Gimpshop (theres another thread about it) and when I would run it with itunes and adium it would be a little sluiggish. Now its perfect, it acts like its the only application open. I really havent tested it out to its full potential yet. But yes there is a signifcant performance increase.

    yeah i stopped being lazy and checked ebay. Another guy took out his 2 x 256 and upgraded and is selling the ram for $80. I payed a little over $200 for this upgrade and if i could get $80 that would be amazing. $120 for an extra 1 and a half gig of memory, not bad at all.

    Someone must've upgraded a bunch of G5's on eBay because a few months ago I saw a few auctions for the "stock" memory chips that come with the comp.

    I'm kicking myself for not grabbing them either. One auction was for a 4gb kit ~$75.
