    as long as their 9-9-9-24 times and have voltages the play nice together theirs no reason u cant buy a new 8gb kit and run with 10gb of ram. I'm doing that right now with 2 different 4gb sets if u look at my specs.

    I've never personally noticed much of a reliability difference between the mid range and high end ram.. all seem to crap out alot less often then the bargain bin stuff
