I found that it can handle up to 32 Gb.
Can I just put 2x 16 Gb into it? so I end up with 40 Gb
or.... since there is 8 Gb in it already, I can only add 24Gb to it ?

Can't really find much info over it.


2nd issue..
I see on the Asus Website a NEWER video driver for this laptop.. BUT when I use the Usus Live update it tells me there is nothing?

32GB max in 4 ram slots, any combination resulting in 32GB will work, not 40GB.

Download, install it and test it yourself. Do yourself the favor and uninstall ASUS Live Update as it just creates headaches.

4 x 8gb. [[[ imho, 4 x 4 is better.16.Depending on what your using it for ??? ]]]

I Always download/Then install drivers.
With 'almost' Zer0 background apps/services as possible on the system.c.

16 Gb total then... don't want to open the whole laptop to get to the other memory and void the warranty.
unless I can add 2 x 8 gb = 16 + 8 internal = 24 Gb

yes you can do 2x8 + 2x4 internal, @pka4916. here (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?23929-Adding-RAM-to-G75&p=256391&viewfull=1#post256391) is a working combo like this one.

Thanks..

Funny to read that too much memory might be overkill for games ??
Never heard of that before.
Does that mean, games will run like crap?
I'm using it more for programming etc..

@pka4916, i think so. the larger memory space leads to increased seek time in memory. for gaming, smaller sized ram space actually helps to make the system more responsive. normally i think 8 is the sweet spot (usually it's like 8 to 16gb). if more than 16gb the system will be 'slower'.

Um, no... The average ram seek times are around 3-4 nano seconds. To put that into perspective, there are one billion nano seconds in one second. An increase in available RAM by 16GB to total 24GB isn't going to slow anything down, not to any point anyone would notice in real world usage.

@ZeroBarrier, yeah you're right actually.

perhaps it's just me who is imagining things too much. i compared the load times of some graphic editing software before and after i did the full swap; i 'feel' it's slower by half a sec to 1 sec lol!

LOL. ok, 16 Gb it is then...
