There's really no such thing as "AMD only" RAM. A lot is marketed this way, but any DDR3 @ 1.5V (or less) should be fine for that CPU. higher end kits pushed the voltage to 1.65V.
How bout this yruis 8gb 1600 ram? Or maybe i should stick with the branded ones?

For the most part, ram is ram.
Even the off-brand stuff should work just fine. Definitely aim to replace the 2x4GB with 2x8GB, opposed to simply adding more. That's where you might run into some headaches.

Just to confirm though, is this a consumer retail motherboard (ASUS, MSI etc), or an OEM (Lenovo, HP, Dell etc)? Some OEM boards can be picky when it comes to memory support.... Lenovo especially comes to mind.

I'm running Team Dark DDR3-1600 4x4GB with no complaints. Fairly inexpensive, just don't forget to turn on XMP in Bios for it to run at it's designed speed. (I just learned that myself the other day)
