Hello all,

I've just joined this forum in order to get an expert opinion regarding if the RAM I'm going to buy is compatible with my computer or not. Right now, I've only 2GB RAM and I want to add 4GB to increase the speed.

Following is the link to the specification of my desktop computer:

The RAM I'm going to buy is:

Kingston KVR16N11S8/4 4GB DDR3 RAM 1600MHz Non-ECC CL11 DIMM Single Rank

Thanks in advance :)

You computer appears to have an ASUS H81M-DS2 motherboard which comes in 4 revision numbers.
https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-H81M-DS2-rev-10#ov

All 4 revision numbers support a maximum of 16 GB of DDR3-1333/1600 RAM.

That means you can install a maximum of 8 GB in each of its 2 DIMM slots.
8 GB X 2 = 16 GB

If you currently have a 2 GB DDR3-1333/1600 module in one DIMM slot, you can install a 4 GB DDR3-1333/1600 module in the second DIMM slot.

According to the specs on the 4 GB DDR3-1600 module you mentioned, it should work okay.
