Hello, i’ve been watching other posts but didn’t get clear, couse others add with different brands

I curently have 2x4 2133mhz ram and I plans to go up to 32gb of ram in future because I do photography design and video editing

I plan to add 2x8 kit which has same 2133mhz

Both are hyperx fury stick kits

My pc settup
Intel i5 6500
450w 80+ silver
Gtx 970 gaming 4g
MOTHERBOARD MSI B150M bazooka

So it won’t put me in trouble if I add those 8gb Sticks? Will it not be like it goes all performance to just those 8gb sticks?

Thank you!

Impossible to tell until you try it. It might work. It might not. The only thing that is as close to certain as you can get is that a single 32GB (4x8GB) kit will not give you any issues. Probably not what you want to hear, but my recommendation would be to wait until you can afford the complete upgrade to 32GB.
