    If you are looking to upgrade your 2017 iMac 27" 5K's you can up it to 128GB of RAM.

    Same RAM modules used by 2019 iMac 27" 5K.

    $120.75 32GB DDR4 2666MHz (1 x 32GB)
    $241.50 64GB DDR4 2666MHz (2 x 32GB)
    $483.00 128GB DDR4 2666MHz (4 x 32GB)

    Personally I'd only go up to 2x32GB + 2x4GB for 72GB of RAM.

    ^Something in me says I'd be better with a 4 X 16GB config (64GB) - uniform... rather than a non-uniform 72GB config. - assuming I don't wanna throw some stash to max out :)
