Hey guys I currently have Kingston Hyperx 4gb ram (2 x 2gb)
Right here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820104140
and I'm planning to get 8gb (2 x 4gb) ram and was wondering if I can mix and match my ram with this ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820233144
or this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820104239
and even this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820104173

but non of them have the same specs as my ram. My CAS is 7 and timings are 7-7-7-21 and 1333mhz.

is it okay to add different kind of ram or I should buy the same exact ones ?

Specs:
CPU: AMD X6 1055t right now is it is OC to 3.2ghz
Mobo:Asus Crosshair Formula IV
Psu Corsair TX650

You can slow the timings down - if you buy an 8GB kit that runs 8-8-8-24, you can slow the CAS 7 RAM down to the slower timings.

Or you can run the 8GB kit alone - that would let you use 1600MHz or faster RAM, which you can't do if you keep the 1333MHz RAM in the machine.
