  • Ram upgrade on power mac G5

    I know this is probably a stupid question, but here goes.

    I want to jump from 512 MB of ram to 1 GB.

    When purchasing ram do I buy another 512 chip set (2x256) bringing the mac to 512 + 512 = 1GB approx., or a 1 GB set with the thought that the retailers labelling may be implying the acheivable ram if installed rather than the amount of ram that would be added.

    I am quite sure it is the former but don't want to make a mistake with my purchase.

    Thanks in advance as this forum has always given me good advice and answers.

    The 512MB (2x256) kit is what you want. The amount on the kit is what is added to your computer.
