My question also is can i just add a extra ram stick or do i need to buy all new ram sticks i hope not but yeah.

Hope for a fast response i want to play RUST and it needs more ram to play.

    You've got two slots so if one is free you can add another 8GB DDR4Laptop 2400MHz or greater. Or you can go wild with 2 x 16GB DDR4s. Jack E/NJ

    You must use laptop RAM modules because they are different pinouts than desktop modules. They are usually designated as DDR4L for Laptop. Anything 2400MHz or faster should be fine irrespective of brands. However, a matched set is often preferred for mainboards that can support dual channel speed enhancement between CPU & RAM.  Jack E/NJ

    mine says NO AD 1835 and the other says NO AC 1628

    Same module. Probably different production dates. Doesn't really matter because your model's mainboard is not listed as supporting dual channel speed anyway. But if it did, this should be a good match. If it was mine, I'd buy the module. Jack E/NJ
