OK, I currently have 2028MB RAM and I want to upgrade.
Relevant specs directly ripped from DxDiag:

My question is pretty simple, can I just replace my RAM sticks with something like Kingston ValueRAM KVR1333D3N9K2/4G
or Corsair XMS3 CMX8GX3M2A1600C9
Is 8GB even relevant? I like videogames.
Are there any brands I should avoid? I recognized Kingston and Corsair as famous brands, but I admit I don't know much about PCs besides what better informed people tell me.
