The best way to go about this is to check the speed of the existing memory(MHz) and then getting the same speed and size memory. But mixing memory is not ideal option, if you mix the higher speed memory with the lower speed the highest will default to the lower speed. Sometimes this setup would work but most often it leads to incompatibility issues. So I'd say go with the same speed memory.
If you are not sure about the speed of the existing memory then install CPU-Z and check the SPD tab or check the manufacturer's part number . Cheers!!

Even mixing the same exact model can still be problematic, it's not a good idea to mix sticks, it CAN work, but all to often they don't want to work together and you spend hours trying to get them to work - wasted hours, much cheaper to just get a set of the amount you want, unless of course your time means nothing to you
