Right, thanks for the tip.

Remember, computers are like ACs; they work well until you open Windows...

Compusa, authorized by Apple, charges 29 dollars for the first upgrade and another 15 for the second item if they are done together. The RAM is easy to install but if you would also like to upgrade your HDD or optical drive, you might want to consider this. Or if you just don't want to mess with it (my case).

If you live in Austin, TX, I found a store that will do all the upgrades for a 40 dollar fee, and will consult with an electrician to overclock. They are at:

www.austinhappymac.com

and they are great.

Just remember, the guy in the video has probably done it a hundred times if not more. The video definetly makes it seem like it's pretty easy to do (and it is.) but don't be too over-confident, prepare, take it slow, and if you feel antsy, or if something doesn't seem right; stop what you're doing and talk to someone who has done it before. That, I'm sure, will save you a few headaches if things don't go as planned.
