I have an older gaming rig that I'm trying to spruce up bit and the only thing holding it back right now is the 4gb of RAM. I've never added more RAM to an existing machine so I apologize if this is a really stupid question but will there be any issues if I just grab another two sticks of a different brand and throw it in with the existing sticks? I have 2X4GB of DDR3 Patriot in there and my buddy is sending me 2x4GB Corsair DDR3. I know they have to match the motherboard but I've never mixed brands before.
