    I don't know that Memory, but what I can tell you is that I recommend you getting anything you find in the list that is found on the site you posted (Memory/Device Support tab).
    I would also recommend you to not get more than 8GB RAM, since that is pretty much a waste, unless you also edit graphics.
    Even if you think that by getting more RAM, to be "high-end" in the future as well, the RAM u get today will still be outdated then (DDR4, 5, 6, etc.)

    Moved to "Computer Build Help".

    I find it hard to see how Battlefield 3 would use up 6GB worth of RAM (including Windows and whatnot). Are you sure the amount of RAM you have is the issue?

    I went from 6gb to 8gb the day Skyrim came out and I see zero difference for BF3 going from 6 to 8gb. This is with a few programs going on iin the backround (windows media player, firefox etc).

    BF3 should come no where close to 6GB. You're probably just seeing Window's cache filling it up, not the game.

    my problem is that my computer eat up ram the longer its turned on so after like 4 hours it uses about 4-4.5GB ram where there is nothing i can close..
    sometimes when i play bf3 i see i have around 80MB ram left... sometimes even around 35mb.... so..

    any1? =), dont want to waste money buying the wrong ram or something like that.. and also something i forgot to say is,
    that when im buying the 12GB there is a big chance i wont get 18GB ram but only 12GB as my CPU cooler block 3 ram slots so might only have room for 3 slots with is why i buy 12GB (3x4GB) and not just 6GB (3x2GB) =)
