What RAM for my nForce 790i Ultra SLI

I currenlty have DDR3, 4x1Gb at 533 MHz and I am using approximatley 75% of my RAM. I am thinking I will see a significant performance improvement if I increase the RAM, but don't know what to buy.

Thanks!

Go to crucial.com

And use their Crucial Memory Advisor Tool.

It's fast and will give you several options...

RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, SSD at Crucial.com

I went to Crucial, but it doesn't list nVidea as a manufacturer option. Who do I pick?

NVidia is your graphics card.

Your computer is Alienware.

You can always use their "System Scanner" to autodetect your memory.

Lemure, really appreciate the help. I looked on the mother board and it really is a nVidia mobo (NVIDIA nForce 790i Ultra SLI MCP)

Crucial has a system scanner? I will try that.

My system is so screwed up that I have trouble keeping what is in it straight. I am one of the many screwed Alienware customers. Sent it back 7 times in 3 years. Eventually they replaced everything but the HD and the case.

OK, ran their tool and it gave me an error (told me what I had though - 4x1GB - and that I can go up to 20GB).
I am thinking of buying 2x4GB, maybe 1600MHz since it is a huge boost and relatively inexpensive. I think it will run (after reading the page I sent the link on) but appreciate any feedback.

Looks perfect - I found similar prices a couple of places, but just wasn't sure it would work in my computer. Thanks for the help - big rep from me!
