I have been noticing a lot of posts mentioning inexpensive RAM modules for beige machines. So if some people dont mind sharing where are you guys picking up these things for the 70/85/9500 Powermacs?

Here's where I ordered 4 - 128MB EDO stix for my 8500.
FedEx preship info says they'll be here tomorrow.
110 bucks for a half-gig is almost as cheap as RAM for my G4 duallie.

I bought mine from Macsolutions. Wherever you go, make sure there's a lifetime warranty on it.
