I built my current PC in 2013. I have yet to have a reason to tackle a new build. However, I do want to expand the memory to 32gb from 16gb (outside gaming I do a lot of video/image editing and I notice my software is pushing my memory limits).

I currently have :
https://www.newegg.com/corsair-16gb-240-pin-ddr3-sdram/p/N82E16820233281?Item=N82E16820233281

But I can't seem to find sticks of this model anywhere online.

So my question is (as I've never tried it) is their potential problems mixing two different brands of RAM? i.e. https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb-240-pin-ddr3-sdram/p/N82E16820231528?Description=PC3 14900&cm_re=PC3_14900-_-20-231-528-_-Product

Or would I be better off just buying 32gb of ram straight up? Things to consider, I would rather spend less, but the cost of 32gb over an additional 16 really isn't an issue
