    Live and learn.
    Many don't research their memory purchases ahead of time where you check the memory manufacturer's web site and/or contact their tech support to see if they've tested specific memory modules with your motherboard. Another good option is to read memory reviews from the best websites. You can also ask questions in an online forum to see which memory brands and models work well with specific motherboards. Some memory buyers get in trouble because they believe or misunderstand the manufacturer's marketing claims. All memory is not created equal and there can be any number of incompatibilities between some hardware brands.

    Your best bet will be to buy a 2 x 4GB kit of DDR3 memory that works well with AMD systems if you're staying with AMD.
    Most memory manufacturers have online "memory configurators" that will recommend which models are best suited for your motherboard.
    GSkill and some others list which motherboards they've tested with each memory model.

    It's best to avoid 8GB single or multiple modules unless you know exactly what you're doing.
    Buying the right 8GB memory kit (2 x 4GB or 4 x 2GB) shouldn't be a problem if you've done your homework.
    Hopefully the tech repair people at your local shop can advise you.
    I'm leery of salesmen.
