Bah. RAM. You.

I’ve decided to stave off my perturbing desire for a new iPod, because my PowerMac needs more RAM. To borrow the tone from my previous post on this, “I’ve decided not to take on another mistress because the children are starving.”
It’s so exciting that I’m finally using Logic for more serious stuff (apart from making chipmunk sounds).
The thing is, my usual AppleCentre is offering S$599 for 1GB of RAM and a lifetime warranty. That’s like buying a brand new iPod! Currently I have 512MB of RAM and I’m thinking I can get by with adding 2X512MB slots. That’s 1.5GB of RAM in total. I’ll be doing sound productions most of the time, and the occasional home video for family members, e.g. Mother’s Day.
Questions for the more experienced Mac gurus out there: Is it more worthwhile going to Sim Lim and buying the RAM instead? And if so, what sort of RAM do I need for a PowerMac G5?
[Update: Thank you so much everyone. This is the first time I’ve heard of SGL Marketing but I am definitely going to check it out. Just did some Googling and found out exactly how to find the shop. ]

    You’re better off buying it from SGL at Sim Lim or any of the other vendors… it’s much cheaper. Applecentre is expensive.
