It's always best to install ram in matched sets.
Matched sets of ram have been tested to work together without problems.

I always by ram in matched sets.
So yes If was my computer I would remove the ram you have and install a matched set of 8 gigs.

As layback bear has stated, ram should always be installed in matching pairs, simply because you will get a slight edge over unmatched pairs when it comes to speed, and can sleep well knowing they won't explode anytime :)
