About a year ago, I bought my kids a cyberpower premade computer (probably off of amazon if I remember correctly).  While it does good for there gaming needs (mindcraft, overwatch, subnautica, fortnight, etc).  I was looking to upgrade the RAM to give it a little more boost.  With Planet Zoo coming out soon, I know my kids will want to play it and I am not sure it can handle everything graphically so I figured upgrading the RAM will help.  But I am not sure what RAM to get that will work well with there PC (motherboard, etc).  It has been forever since I have bought any individual parts for a PC, I usually just get a new gaming PC from cyberpower about every three years to keep up with my gaming needs.  With that being said, I would appreciate any help anyone can give me on picking out what RAM to upgrade their computers with.  Was looking to probably go from 8 to 16....

There specs.
AMD FX 6300
Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB
That's all I really know based off of the amazon listing I got it from.  I can dig deeper into their PC if you need more info, but not sure where to find everything.  Again, this was a premade PC from cyberpower sold on Amazon.  I have found in the past, these forums are usually very helpful with info like this so hopefully someone will have some insight and help me out.

Generally when it comes to the graphic end of things if you want to increase the graphic resolution you would need to upgrade the graphics card but can't hurt to upgrade the RAM considering most games require a minimum of 16GBs of RAM now a days.

However, you should be able to handle running that game probably at least on Medium settings with your current GPU. As far as what brand of RAM to get, I believe you could go with GSKILL Trident Z or pretty much any brand of RAM of your choosing.

I am not familiar enough with motherboards though to promise you that your motherboard will be compatible with that brand of RAM.
