Mixing ram in my new system

Budget (including currency): 200aud

Country: Aus

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Tarkov

DETAILS- So in my current rig i have 16gb of Gskill DDR4 RipJAWSV F4-3200C16-8GVK and im looking to  buy another 2 8gb stick of the same RAM but the product name is f4-3200C16D-8gvk. I was wondering if that pesky one letter difference will make my life a misery? Have never mixed and matched RAM before so just wondering. Any help would be greatly appreciated, sincerely a young man who is sick of stutters in Tarkov 🙂

I've had to mix RAM like that before, with a hand-me-down build I did for someone else, and the system worked fine. It wasn't even considered a mix and match, because the specs lined up. If the specs line up on the RAM, then you're 100% fine.

 

EDIT: Are you sure there's no D in the first one? I can't find one without that letter to confirm anything.

Unfortunately the answer is maybe it will, maybe it wont.

Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (~940Mbit peak) + Ubiquiti nanoHD (OpenWRT)
ISPs: Zen VDSL (66Mbit) + Lebara 4G [Vodafone] (~120Mbit) + Three 5G (~700Mbit during quiet hours, ~500Mbit peak hours)

I'm 90% sure as when i type wmic memorychip get devicelocator, partnumber into command prompt it comes up with the C, when searching online i couldn't find the C part in any current stock but saw on a reddit post somebody asking the same question.

I have seen really mixed memory's and they where working, So it's not likely they won't work.

If they cause problem, You can most likely run to any hardware store(that also sells used parts) and ask them to swap those memory's for kit. They might do it for free or for + 10-20 USD. (That's okey in my country, Not sure what's situation in your country but it should not be a problem.)
