Yeah, it's recommended that you get the same brand RAM, but different RAM will work.

Default Re: Games freeze upon adding new RAM

I ran a memtest today and no errors were detected. Its just that everytime i boot up in safemode, and test DirectDraw and Direct3D, they all work without and stuff-ups but when i boot windows normally and play games or test the DirectX tests, the computer freezes.
And now even when i start watching movies on Windows media player/realplayer, computer freezes.
