The 4GB kit is cheaper than a kit from Newegg.com by at least $40.

Not bad prices, but there are some G.Skill sets on Newegg that have them beat. The 4GB set actually beats them by $15. OWC is probably better to deal with if something goes wrong though. I don't think G.Skill has much based in this country. That being said, I've been running the 2GB set without any trouble. I wouldn't hesitate buying from them again.

2GB = $64.95

4GB = $179.95

I have a 1.66GHz Core Duo mini with 1 GB ram. How much of a performance gain will I see if I double the ram to 2 GB?

(Is it worth the $70?)

EvilCalvin, have a look at this thread: http://www.123macmini.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=13399

I think it will answer most of your questions.

They have comparisons of their memory being used in the iMac and Mac mini.

It basically includes every configuration from 1GB to 4GB.
