Hi, I'm currently in the process or ordering a new 2017 iMac 27" 3.4GHz quad-core i5 and was looking into upgrading the standard 8gb RAM to 16gb. Should i swap out the current two 4gb sticks for a new set of two 8gb sticks, or simply add another two 4gb sticks to get to 16gb total? Also, would it be possible to run the current two 4gb + a new pair of 8gb sticks for a total of 24gb?
Appreciate any feedback prior to ordering the iMac and ram upgrade.

@GauciBreMT Thanks for contacting us. There is no problem with mixing and matching RAM in this system. You could install a single 8GB stick, add two 4GB sticks, or add to the exisitng. I would recommend adding to the existing for the time being that way you can always add more RAM to this system in the future if necessary. A list to all available upgrades can be found here. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
