I'm going to buy the G750JX-CV038, but i need to upgrade to full 32gb of ram because someone at asus decided not to sell the 32g model in italy... i don't know why... where i can get the ram stikcs? and anyone knows if the apple thunderbolt to firewire adapter will work on this notebook?

Welcome to the ROG forums, raffal.

Assuming your G750JX-CV038 comes with 2 x 8GB sticks at 1600MHz with a CAS 11, the Gskill F3-1600C11D-16GRSL kit will play well with your existing RAM.

But if you're looking for maximum performance, you can buy two sets of F3-1600C9D-16GRSL to replace the stock 16GB and add the extra 16GB. Because the F3-1600C9D-16GRSL have lower timings (CAS 9), you would get a nice performance boost over the stock CAS 11 sticks.

My last G750JX-Cv038H had 2 x 8GB made by SAMSUNG! You have Gskill on yours? Remember also that this notebook need DDR3L type. :confused:

No, mate. I was just stating that the first Gskill kit I linked will work well with his existing 16GB 1600MHz at CAS 11 sticks. :p

Keep in mind that RAM speed doesn't make all that much difference for gaming, and in most cases no difference. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/memory-bandwidth-latency-gaming,3409.html for a more detailed investigation (though they don't go over that many games). Remember that the testing system there is a desktop with CPU/GPUs that are significantly better than what is in the G750 - on the laptop you can expect the CPU/GPU to be the major bottleneck.

Brand-name RAM can of course have other benefits like better warranty, but honestly when was the last time your RAM chip burned out? :)
