Quick story, My PC needs an upgrade, I'm sick of having 6GB RAM so I want to replace my really really old 2GB RAM Stick with a new Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB (1x8GB) DDR3 Bus 1600Mhz 1.35V
Picture:


Here's my PC specs:



Here's the RAM that I will be keeping


And here's the RAM that I'm about to replace:


I actually went up online and do some researching and see that the new RAM is compatible with my PC since it's DDR3, the same voltage as my 4 gigs stick (not sure if that's important).
Yet I am still afraid to upgrade because I don't know anything about the Bus/Speed, I don't know what it is so I hope to get an answer if I can upgrade as well as an explaination of what the mhz spec is.

You could, but it may cause some performance issues as mixing and matching RAM can be hit and miss.

The safest option would be replacing all the RAM with the quantity you want.
So if I replace both of my current RAM with two of the kingston 8Gb ram sticks then everything should be fine and there will be no issues right?
