you haven't linked to a specific piece of crucial ram so don't know, but as long as it's basically the same as the mushkin then no reason why not.

Doesn't look like the crucial is any cheaper so why not get the same mushkin as you have then you are 100% sure.

Whenever it is in your power to do so it is always best to keep the RAM the same size and brand.

Mixing will often work provided it's the same specification but why risk winding up being one of those for whom it doesn't.

Your computer will starting nagging you about how it doesn't feel good, and something is wrong.
If you keep it in there to long you are going to kill it...

Two different voltages isn't a good thing.

Just buy the same brand/type and you'll be fine.
