Looking to upgrade RAM for Gateway NV57H13u laptop

I would like to upgrade the memory on my Gateway laptop. The specs, listed here, show Windows 7 64-bit, but says I can only upgrade to 8GB of memory. Is this correct? I thought 64-bit systems could handle more, or is another component limiting the RAM?
Thanks for the help>

    64-bit Windows can indeed address more than 8GB, but only if your laptop's motherboard supports more than 8GB.
    Same applies to desktop computers.

    Yes, it is correct. You can upgrade only upto 8GB as your laptop (laptop's motherboard supports only upto 8GB). So I agree with the above reply 64bit that windows can address more than 8GB as long as your system supports above 8GB of memory.
  3. Thanks for the help. I plan on upgrading to 8Gb of memory. Most Likely HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 HyperX Plug n Play Laptop Memory Model KHX1600C9S3P1K2/8G.
