Hey I built my computer a few years ago with 4 GB (2 modules) of "Sector 5" G Series PC3-10666 1333 MHZ

I'm going to get a new video card tomorrow and figured I would grab the other 4GB while I'm at Microcenter. They no longer have the exact ram but they do have,

"G Series 'Sector 5' edition 4GB DDR3-1600 (PC-12800) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 2GB Memory Modules)"

Can I combine these two with no ill effects?

Thanks in advance

In most cases they will work together but if you want to be sure why not get 2x4GB (problem free) and sell of your old sticks on ebay.

Sounds like a plan. Thanks

Do you think it is worth it to get DDR3-1866 & PC315000 ?

I was looking at these, http://www.microcenter.com/product/396999/Intel_Extreme...(PC3-15000)_CL_9_Desktop_Memory_Kit_(Two_4GB_Memory_Modules)

I want to stick with Patriot just because I haven't had any problems with the current sticks.

1600MHz sort of looks to be the sweet spot on price/performance.
