Your cheapest option may be to go with what Walter has suggested. But first check your motherboard manual/specs. Chances are, if your motherboard is a Z97, the most RAM you can have is 32GB. If, however, it is 64GB max and your current RAM sticks are each 8GB, then they will have to be discarded as you will need 16GB x 4 sticks to make 64GB. And be reminded that your current RAM is DDR3.

As for your friend's Xeon (not Xenon, a type of lamp), check to ensure it is for LGA1150 which is the number of pins in the cpu socket of your current motherboard. If not, then your friend's Xeon will not fit that socket, and a new motherboard is necessary for the Xeon.

If you have more money to splurge, then go for a new system based on LGA2011-3 and DDR4 RAM, etc!!
