The existing one is also from Samsung. Most likely the second one is compatible but 4GB+8GB is not a good option, to get full benefit of dual channel architecture you are much better to use 4GB+4GB or 8GB+8GB.

Thanks Banhien for your reply. I totally satisfied with your answer.
As per my understanding , If i choose 4Gb+4Gb combination then dual channel architecture will works for both 4 GB Ram , if i choose 8GB+8GB combination then dual channel architecture will works for both 8 GB Ram.
Now if i choose 4gb +8gb then dual channel architecture will works for 4GB for first Ram and 4 GB for second 8GB Ram(Remaining 4 GB will works as Single channel). Also i get to know that , second slot is not suitable for 4 GB Ram(Min 8 GB Ram).
Please suggest if i remove the 4 GB from slot 1 and replaced both slot by 8 GB(Total 8+8 = 16GB) will be great option or just put the 8 GB in the second slot(Total 4+8=12 GB) for the time being.In the second option , only i need to purchase one 8GB rather than two 8 GB.
Thanks in advance.
