Hi guys, gals, small furry creatures etc.

Do you think that this memory:

http://www.amazon.co...mp;linkCode=asn

Is compatible with my MOBO?

Reason I'm asking is that in the Amazon review, they state "This memory is designed for the following systems:Apple Power Mac G5 Dual Core 2.3GHz;Apple Power Mac G5 Dual Core 2GHz;Apple Power Mac G5 Quad 2.5GHz."

Yet the specs seem to be ok.


Many thanks for any replies!!!! :)

Hello Jonesey.... Welcome to GeeksToGo, :) :) :)

I'm sorry to hear about your issue. We will try to help you resolve this as soon as possible.
Please understand we are all volunteers and we are not here all the time. Sometimes it may be a extended amount of time to get back to you. If it has been more then 3 days please shoot me a PM and I will try to get back to you quickly then.

I am going to suggest you try the following to get the exact configuration for your system. This will guarantee that the memory is compatible.

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system. You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

You are very welcome.
I would suggest that if you are not going to replace all your memory then make sure the new memory is as fast as what you have.
With the cost of memory being so low now it would be more cost effective to replace with two 1 gig modules from the same manufacturer and that way they would be 100% compatible and there won't be any issues short of a bad module.

Yes - that's exactly what I plan on doing - replace the lot.

Thank you for your time.

rshaffer61 - just to let you know that I've installed 4Gb of fully matched RAM, and since then, my machine has never been faster, has not crashed once (I was getting regular BSOD's - BAD POOL CALLER)

You can close this topic if that's standard operating practice.
