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.
