I was given a PC that had 4GB of A-RAM DDR3 1333. Not long after this, I purchased 8GB of G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 1600. For the past couple of months I've been running the PC with both installed. Is this a good idea? Could the cheap / nasty RAM be hampering the new RAM? Or is it better to have the 12GB?

It's better to have just one type of ram. You should just use the 2 x 4gb 1600. Quite often mixing ram causes BSoD's.
No BSoDs so far, but I have been wondering whether the slower RAM would be holding the faster RAM back?
