OK, here are the break-downs:
G75/G55: 1600 MHz
All others: 1333 MHz

As to brands, most are fine, Kingston, Crucial, and G-Skil are the name-brand ones that come to mind. I haven't had any problems with my cheap RAM, so anything of the right speed and voltage (Which I don't know for the G-series) should run fine.

How about corsair model? Vengeance® — 8GB High Performance Laptop Memory Upgrade Kit (CMSX8GX3M2A1866C10) ?

what i know about corsair vengeance is: 4x4gb works; for 4x8gb, some reported work but others won't boot properly (i.e. inconsistent results)

edit: but if you wished to fill up your empty ram slots instead of full swap, check out here (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?23929-Adding-RAM-to-G75&p=168646&viewfull=1#post168646).

In terms of brand reliability, they are quite good.

go and follow the advice being given by @Zygomorphic and @rewben and you will have a successful ram upgrade for sure as I followed it myself and boom, ram upgrade done. :)

There are four, usually with two loaded from the factory. One of the factory loaded sticks is hidden :(, so if you want to totally upgrade the RAM, you will have to disassemble the computer significantly more than you would to add two more sticks into the empty slots.

@ashue, thanks for the compliments, @rewben is one of the notebook wizards around here. :)
