"Can I buy 2 sticks of a different brand memory with the same specs ." - yes, absolutely.

As long as it's DDR2 RAM that's compatible with the motherboard it will run fine. You don't have to match them exactly either, but is preferable if you do. G

Further to Crossbow7's response, be careful that the voltage requirement for both types of RAm is the same. Most motherboards don't allow multiple voltages.
