I'm upgrading the ram in my GA-EP35-DS3L from 4 to 8gb of ram. The concern I have is; A) do I buy 4 more gb of ram? Or B) do I buy a whole new set of 8gb. The ram I currently have is;

Unfortunately, it is no longer sold. So, I could get a new set of ram like;

or
http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-TWIN2X4096-6400C5C-PC2-64...

to add to the system. OR, I could buy an entirely new set like;

I do not know if it is necessary to buy all of the same ram. My system is very stable now, and I don't want to undo that stability. Thank you for your help!

Mixing ram (same specs, voltage) works most of the time but for the time it does not the best thing to do is a new set.

Thanks for the reply. I have another question. Is 8 gb of ram even necessary for a gaming? Will games benefit from more than 4 gb of ram?

Most will not but some of the newer ones do if you have a 64bit OS. 32bit OS only supports 4GB.
