I currently have a single 8gb stick of RAM, and I want to either purchase another one of the same brand and specifications, or ditch my current stick and get 2 new 8gb sticks all together, as I have been having stuttering issues in certain games and have been unable to find what's causing it. Will adding more RAM decrease or eliminate stuttering? What should I buy / do?

It is best to have a matched set but if you can find another one of your Adata 8GB with the same part number it might work. When you have 2 modules you put them in skipped sockets like A2 and B2 (recommended) or A1 and B1 for dual channel configuration.
