I have a 17" 2011. It was purchased with 8GBs of RAM and a 256 SSD. I upgraded the memory to 16GBs recently. The drive is always down to its last 10GBs or so. Last couple days, I'm using it and literally whole screen just goes to grey or blue and then it just sits there. I let it go a bit the last time and it popped out a few times, but also had to be booted, and once went to the death screen.

Just wanted to solicit some opinions. I generally don't mess with 3rd party memory because it is a fool's bargain, but 8GBs was killing me (doing development).

I have a 512 SSD I have not installed yet and I have been taking Time Machine backups regularly.

Mountain Lion installed, latest version.
