Assuming you still have: GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H AM3

Memory

4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 16 GB of system memory (Note 1)
Dual channel memory architecture
Support for DDR3 1866(OC)/1333/1066 MHz memory modules (Note 2)

Yes - your system supports 16 gb so that would 4 4 gb so 8 will work just fine.

You have 4 slots, so 2 slots are channeled and that comes out to 2 sets.

Its usually something like A1 A2, B3 B4 or A1, B1, A2, B2

In your case put the old ram in the blue and the new in the white or vice versa and you should be good to go.
