Question I need help with upgrading RAM ?

DDR3 is pretty forgiving about mix-'n-match
It's quite possible they would run together but at CL 10 as it always defaults to slower RAM

No guarantees but if it works it should be as described :
Size difference is not a problem but at best you will get dual channel only with 4+4GB and not on other 4. Cl most probably will be 10 as it's worse than Cl 9 but considering boost from 4 to 12GB and dual channel you'll get performance increase.
PS, if you are running 32Bit OS you would still have only up to GB of total usable memory.

im running a 64-bit os, hopefully there would be no blue screen errors. the same 4gb ram ddr3 is available but its costlier than corsair 8gb ddr3, would you suggest i go with the same one over the 8gb one? thank you
