If you want to be 100% sure you can, like I mentioned before, check the QVL of your mobo. In there you can find the RAM that is tested by the manufacturer, and proven to be compatible

The previous two ram models suggested are compatible with your motherboard.
plug them into the motherboard then make sure they run on the correct timings,voltage and frequency in bios and you are good to go .

on that page you can find the 'Memory Support List' (see 'tech support')

Like mentioned above: those G.skill modules seem to be ok.

About the 'lagging', if you play the single player campaign, do you also experience the 'lag'?

8G of faster ram at 1600 mhz sound like the most bang for your upgrade buck. DDR3 sticks from any reputable brand sould work for you. You'll have to get 8G of new memory because you can mix and match mem of different speeds (your current mem is 1333Hhz mem). I'd say get two 4G sticks of DDR3 1600mhz ram, and plug them into the blue slots on your mobo.

You want DDR3-1600, 1.5v, 2x4G sticks. The price on that G.Skill memory looks pretty good. Or get two of these Crucial sticks with slightly tighter timing for the same price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148507 . That's what i got in my pc.

You've got a entry level gaming pc, cpu has locked boost multipliers and the H67 chipset means no easy overclocking (good thing, since there aren't many heat sinks on that mobo either). More significant upgrades to the mobo/cpu/gpu would get pricey quickly.

After the RAM, the next easiest thing to upgrade would be the GPU and monitor. Unless you get a higher resolution monitor, it probably doesn't make sense to upgrade the GPU. But suddenly things are getting pricey.

I agree. If you have the ability to save about $600 then you should just build one from scratch. Just to give you a ballpark figure, a mid range AMD build with an 8 core FX CPU would be about twice as efficient as your current PC. Use your same graphics card, new RAM, same hard drive, and same DVD drive. If you upgrade your motherboard, CPU, and RAM, you will find that your speed increases are amazing. A new motherboard from a reputable company (not Foxconn) will give you more options.

What is the difference from buying a branded RAM stick which costs £40 more than a regular stick from a it's own shop brand.

Thank you.

Go for the Ram upgrade. At your performance level super fancy ram won't make any (noticable)difference.
Your CPU is fine, around the level of mine and I am running bf4 above 80fps on high-med. (can't compare GPUs though)
But that GPU will be fine for bf4 on low at that resolution

Better quality,reliability and performance.
Generic rams sticks might be the same size and frequancy but are more likely to have bad timings and higher voltage consumption.
