    Ram for my iMac... suggestions where to buy? 28th Nov 17 at 12:00 PM
    I need to get some RAM and Crucial is the place I usually look and buy it from. Its coming out at £170 approx as I need to get 16Gb and my current RAM (4 slots = 2gb each) all needs to be replaced so I can max my machine to 16Gb.

    Are there any alternatives to picking up RAM cheaper?

    Amazon, Ebuyer, Overclockers, Aria Technology are just some of the places I use. Buying direct from Crucial is always more expensive.
