  1. So I have an Asus N61Jv and am wanting up upgrade the memory from 4 to 8GB. I know that it's DDR3 1066 (PC3-8500) and DDR3 1333 (PC3-10600) compatible. I was wondering if I might be able to step up some more on it like 1600?

    Unless the laptop can be overclocked, I do not believe that will benefit you much.

    Which version of Windows 7 is installed, 32 bit or 64 bit? If 32 bit, then additonal RAM won't be utilized.

    It's the 64-bit version so I knew I could go up to at least 8GB. Probably don't plan on overclocking it anytime soon so I guess 1333 it is.
