Windows 7: A RAM upgrade for Asus G73JH-RBBX05...

A RAM upgrade for Asus G73JH-RBBX05...

I have a question about upgrading the RAM in my laptop because I really want to get up to 16 GB of RAM. I have 6GB of Kingston DDR3 SODIMM PC3-10600 @ 1333 MHz currently running in my system. Here is what I am looking to buy, but I am not sure if it will work: Kingston Technology 8GB (1x8 GB) 1333MHz DDR3 PC3 10600 204-Pin SODIMM Memory for Apple iMac KTA-MB1333/8G: Computers & Accessories

If I get this, I will be up to 14GB and then I just need to replace one of the 2GB sticks with a 4GB stick to get to 16.

Notice how on this page (listed as the link in blue above) it says that the RAM is for " Apple iMac ".

My question here is as follows:

All of the specifications for the RAM in my system and the RAM here match, apart for that the RAM listed above is for Apple iMac, so, will the RAM for the like above still work in my system, or is this RAM (listed above in link) really only somehow for the Apple iMac?

PS, Here is another resource if you should desire to find out more information about the system I have and am currently running:

ASUS G Series G73JH-RBBX05 17.3" NoteBook -

And also, if anyone comes across an actual link for a dedicated 8GB stick of RAM for the Asus G73Jh-RBBX05, please let me know so that I can get it!

As always, thank you so very much your help is greatly appreciated, and good luck in your research!

Asus G73JH possible wrong hard drive swap
Ok so I recently picked up this laptop from some guy for fairly cheap for some light gaming. But once I got it I noticed that the storage hard drive was only 100 gb and that the os drive is 530 gb. I've owned a few laptops and computers in the past and it has always been the other way around. Is it...
Asus G73JH Blue Screen / Locking up issues
Not really sure in what direction to go with fixing my issue, so I'd rather leave it up to the experts. All the files created from Diagnostic Tool are attached. Some issues are the "standard" BSOD, and some are black screen + buzzing type noise.
