Hi @zachalishah

You could, but there may be issues. See, the general rule of thumb is that it's never a good idea to mix n' match RAM. Even when you are on a budget.

How much RAM do you currently have? Whether you have 8, 16, 32 & beyond, you'd have the best performance if you bought a matching set. (2x4GB, 2x8GB etc.)

Give us a realistic budget of what you can spend RIGHT NOW and a general idea of your location and we'll give you a few ideas. :)

As said above, maybe.

Mixing ram is not advisable as there can be stability or no boot issues when mixed ram is used. I have also seen mixed ram with different timings work 100% correctly.

Not real way to know for sure, so I would advice you to buy a new kit or another identical stick.
