Sure they didn't mean available for sale in the pre-built?

The manufacturers site claiming 64GB is correct.

What cpu is in your computer?  From that we can tell if you need ddr3 or ddr4 ram and what speed it supports natively.

Depending on what you do with your pc, i'd recommend not getting more than a 2x8gb kit and just running that. Unless you're doing some serious photo editing and rendering you don't need more than 16gb.  More than that is a waste of money.

 

Mixing ram brands can cause some bad system instability.

Ram is getting cheaper all the time but it is still one of the most expensive parts you need to get a pc up and running.

 

Completely power down your pc and unplug it and with 5 min for the residual energy to drain. Carefully remove your current dimms and replace them with something like THIS FROM AMAZON.  Button it all back up and enjoy.
