Upgrading the ram of Asus ROG G551JW

Hi guys! So I would like to upgrade the ram of my laptop from 8 gb to 16 gb. I have no clue where should I look for to get the one that fits this laptop,I did look on google but couldn't find anything specifically to this. And as well as this would you think it's worth the upgrade? I would like to get black ops 4 , but I can't really get a new laptop right now so might as well boost it as much as possible. I will be re pasting the cpu and gpu. I will eventually sell the laptop in few months and get a better one , but I think selling it with 16 gb will be more appealing to a buyer , so yeah I'm willing to invest a little bit I'm not sure what price range should I be looking at but lets say I'm on a tight budget... In the distributor page it says it has 1 8 gb slot , so I will be good to just add 1 more and it would be working perfectly fine or I need to buy 2 new?Any tips for optimization would be much appreciated!
Thank you so much in advance!

Run the scanner program to see what memory is compatible, buy from there or look for other source.

Thanks! Looks legit , but will it work with no problems if I get 1 more 8 gb stick?

With an older laptop, added memory will help. Will the added memory allow a newer game to work problem free; there is no guarantee.

Sorry I meant that the new ram stick added with the older one would work without any issues? I read that sometimes you just have to buy 2 new ones... I will give it a try anyways hopefully there will be no problems... Thanks

Ive done this a few times with a few ASUS Gaming Notebooks...best to buy complete new kit but Ive never had an issue adding 1 SODIMM........just ensure it matches up with speed and Timings.....

take that site with a grain of salt
while it showed fine for my model it showed comletely false info for my brothers laptop

it said the memory is soldered and non upgradable when in reality its non soldered and he has 2 slots.

Gskill ripjaws 2400MHz. No sense buying anything faster as it won’t go past 2400MHz and don’t try to make it with Intel XTU. Just install the RAM and let it be.*
Always best to replace it all so you have matching everything and buy a kit that matches what you want, not individual sticks. *
