    Just to add, I got tired of waiting for Crucial UK to list any compatible RAM parts for the new Mac Pro.

    I ordered 2x2Gb sticks from OWC in the states... I ordered on the Thursday and they turned up the following Monday. I paid them £125 (conversion rates may vary) and then got a Duty & VAT bill for £33 ... total = £158 for an additional 4 Gb!

    Went in just as easily and works brilliantly.

    'The whole process takes no more than 10 minutes from start to finish'

    Does this include the delivery time from crucial? That is some speedy delivery.

    (I know thats not what you meant but it is how it reads.)
