OK so i currently have this ram

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/patriot-memory-pvi38g160c9...

and eventually im gonna upgrade and give those 2 to my friend and then i wanna max out my RAM.

Here's my Motherboard:

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asrock-motherboard-h77pro4...


so basically my problem is that on the ASRock site where it gives specs on the Motherboard, it shows in the memory support list that there are only two 8 GB models that will work which are these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

im just wondering like whether those really are the only ones or can i use any from this list of RAM combos:

I prefer Patriot and G.Skills RIpjaws but if it wont work thats fine, and i dont wanna spend more than $175.

I just wanna eventually get 32GB of RAM going, since i have the space might as well use it right?

here is my full build at the moment:

On the few computers I have built, I have inserted ram that was not exactly on their supported page, despite it not being on the page the computer still booted and worked fine. As long as the ram is the correct type you are good to go. Just make sure it sticks within the DDR3 range of 1066-1333-1600.
