Upgrading RAM from 4GB to 16GB

My HP 15 F209wm notebook has 4GB of DDR3L RAM, however, I would like to upgrade my RAM to at least 16GB; but my motherboard only supports up to 8GB of RAM, by way of 2 4GB RAM slots (my motherboard also supports 6GB of RAM, 2GB DDR3L x 4GB DDR3L). Should I upgrade my motherboard, in order to make the RAM upgrade, or should I stick with the device specific motherboard and specifications and only upgrade up to 8GB of RAM?

FYI - The upgrade is to obtain better performance, as my PC is suffering from slower performance, I feel due to insufficient RAM storage.

Thanks - Marcellus

Do you still use a hard drive in this computer?

@andrewsawesome I do still use the factory HDD, but I have been thinking of upgrading this as well.

I would stick with the current motherboard and upgrade the RAM and storage device. For the RAM, get 2 4GB RAM sticks. For the SSD I would get a WD Blue SSD (The WD Blue SSD will give your computer about a 5 second boot time).
