I'm about to go ahead and upgrade my late '13 27inch iMac from the default 8GB of RAM, to the max 32GB, and I was just wondering which brand etc. is best/cheapest?

Kind Regards,


Nb. I'm a film editor, so the full 32GB is more than necessary.

I usually buy my RAM from Crucial.com they sell quality hardware. Never had an issue in several decades of ordering from them now....

macsales.com is also another good place. I have not bought RAM from them... but have purchased other hardware.

Me too for Crucial though GSkill is also Micron ram and equally good ram at better prices.
