While you do not have to have identical drives for RAID 0 it is preferred, and they should at a minimum be the same size and speed. Not many people around here recommend RAID for SSDs and I agree with that, better to just add the new drive and use it as a program and data drive -- it will speed things up just as much (other than in benchmarks, which are not indicative of real life) and still give you the added space.
