I just baught a new G75VW and wanted to upgrade it to 16 gb of ram. Is there a specific brand that works best? Ive never shopped for internal parts so it's all very confusing(like there being laptop and desktop ram cards O_o). Any help would be appreciated!

I am sure there are cheaper ones out there but I always use Crucial. I have ordered ram for my G75 from them for $51.

I'm a big fan of G.Skill and Corsair.


What country are you from so we can better point you to the correct retail outlet

US. I tried to use the best buy site, but I realized I was out of my league pretty quickly.

I'm currently using the below:

x2

You can mix the ram, it will downclock its speeds to whichever set is slower (the default ram is slightly slower)
