Here is what I have. I would like to buy 8GB of 1600 ram, link here: Corsair XMS3 Series 8GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 4GB Memory Modules) http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?... This is 1333 same brand if it makes a diff in stability http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?... The G645 only supports 1066 ram.
