It depends on the amount of memory you want to get so. The only recommendation is that the all dimms in  the separate memory banks should be the same.
If you will never not need more that 18GB, I would continue with 2GB modules. Or you can go with additional 2 2GB modules 3 4GB modules.

What's your app?

If it's SBS 2008 ,32 gb is it's max.

Rule of thumb is buy as much as you can afford,but the caveat is if you have an OS that maxes at 32 gb,no point in buying more.

since you list sbs in your topic, as mentioned the limit is 32gb
how you go about it depends on how many cpu sockets your system is using

each socket on a 710 supports 9 modules so you could either do 4 8gb modules for one socket or 8 4gb modules for 2 sockets

if you had only 1 socket  you couldn't add more 2gb modules since you would only get 18gb (if you wanted to go for the 32gb max) but if you are using 2 sockets then you could populate a total of 16 slots (purchasing an addition 12 2gb modules) for your 32gb.  you got a couple ways you can go with this depending on if you have 1 or 2 processors
