Well im no Intel pro.. But I know with AMD systems it will make all of the ram work at the lower sticks speed....So in your case they would all run at the speed the pc3500 is capable of...
And usually it is recommended to use the same sticks ..brand and type for stability and OC'n potential..

Personaly I would get the sticks matching..

I would advise against adding the other module, it will cause problems, as the 3500 EL is likely low latency (2-3-3-7) while the PC-4200 is CL 2.5-4-4-7...So you will be forced to run the modules at a slower speed with pretty lax timings.
