Hello.

I have 4 slots for memory on my motherboard. 2 slots are occupied by these 2 sticks:

Those are discontinued now and I want 2 more sticks with 4gb on them each for a total of 16gb.

Can I get a another set from newegg thats sub 50 dollars? if so can someone link me the correct kind I should buy?

Here is the link to all sticks of ram sub 50 dollars that are 8 gb: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

Any help would be greatly appreciated

It shouldnt matter what kind you get. It is ok to mix and match ram. Your current ram is 1333. Since that is the slowest ddr3 there is, you wont have to worry about your new ram bottle-necking your system.

That will work. There's no reason why you cant get the faster 1600 ram for slightly cheaper either. I even saw a few sets that were 10% off

No, adding a different set of ram wont effect overclocking. If anything, your current ram would hinder a good overclock because it is pretty slow.
