i have a computer with G-p3G-p35 -dsr2 board and 4gig of 800hz xlr8 (2×-2gig) sticks. id really like to get to 16g for editing

Should i expand to 8gig and if so can i mix and match with less expensive board

Or how hard / expensive would it be to swap the board for a decent one that takes ddr3 up to 16gigs
