OWC

...not the cheapest - but definitely 1st class service. I had ram that was almost 4 years old die on me -- they did an advanced replacement, at no extra cost. And if you actually need to speak with someone who knows hardware, there are more than a few geeks on-staff.

Hello,

I've bought 10's of thousands of dollars of RAM from Data Memory Systems over the years. Never had a problem. Always helpful. Great pricing. Lifetime replacement warranty.

Cheers,
Greg

I have always gone with macramdirect.com for all my ram. Never any issues with them. :)

There's also Newegg.com I don't think they specialize other than electronics but they have pretty good prices.

Default Re: Best Place to buy RAM

there are so many places...

interestingly, all my local mac genius type stores sell the 4GB sticks for around $300.- ...most online stores have a pair for that price. I have had my share of bad ram in the past, so bad quality is not worth a good deal. But just because it costs much doesn't mean its good stuff either...in general its awesome that you can get 8GB of RAM for under 800bucks...
