and the current RAM model I have is here: http://www.playtech.co.nz/afawcs0139...L9D-4GBNT.html

I just want to upgrade to 8 GB, I have two singular 2 GBS. And I think I have another slot, if you guys could recommend me the right model to buy or use to upgrade I would very much appreciate it, I also live in Australia by the way.

EDIT ADDITIONAL NOTES: When ever I play a game on high quality like say... Dead island or Bio shock, I notice my computer fan gets really loud and when I check my MSI afterburner it's going at 92/100, and when it can't take it any more the screen goes all pixeley... And when I try record a game with fraps my game and computer start lagging alot, would getting more ram solve this issue?

Can you give us a screen snip of the Mainboard Tab & the SPD Tabs of the different slots ?

Under the SPD tab. There is an option to click on the slot down V arrow to see the other available memory slots if they have a stick in them or they are empty.

If you are talking about memory slot selection, when I click the arrow it comes up with 4 slots but from what I see in my computer, there is only two cards and there are two blue lines beside both of them, the empty slots do not have blue lines beside them.

A side note: My oldest brother built my computer so I don't know anything about computers.

It says your Motherboard has 4 memory slots.
Number of Memory Slots 4240pinMemory StandardDDR3 2000(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066Maximum Memory Supported 16GB Channel Supported Dual Channel Expansion Slots

Therefore you could use 4 x 4gb memory sticks (all the same brand & speed)

edit: Nvm misread , so 4240pinMemory StandardDDR3 2000(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 would only be usable?
