Hey all, I need some help with a decision. So 4 years ago I built my PC, and while doing that I bought this 8gb ram stick- "G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GB 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Intel Z170 Platform/Intel X99 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C15S-8GVR". Now I am falling short of ram and have decided to go to 16gb.

So my question is should I buy one more stick of this same ram which is some 7 years old model, or should I just remove my current ram and get 2 whole new latest rams? Is there any big performance difference between G.SKILL Ripjaws V F4-2400C15S-8GVR and latest rams?

Note that my current ram is working just fine and pricing for the ram is same as new rams, so if I get 2 new different rams I'll probably be just wasting my current ram stick. My use is mostly software dev./ML, CSGO, sometimes linux VM. Thanks in advance for helping!!

Here's the link for my current ram- https://www.amazon.in/G-SKILL-Ripjaws-288-Pin-Platform-F4-2400C15S-8GVR/dp/B017QGNE6M

You can try it.
Make sure of the return policy if it does not work with the existing ram.

what's your system spec? what's your usage (gaming and etc.)?

i5 6600k
1060 6gb
wd blue

usage: software dev, ML usage/ some gaming(csgo, genshin impact, valo)
for gaming you need RAM kits with higher freq so you should sell this one and buy a new couple of ram sticks . but if you don'tdo much gaming then 2400MHz ram is ok, just add another one to it
