or dose it effect the performance badly ?

no, that is what most (of those who know about pc parts) do.

even those branded pc's have parts from different manufacturer

Mix and match brands all you like!

I have an Asus motherboard, G.Skill RAM, and a Gigabyte GPU, my PC runs 100% fine.

just make sure you do your research, make sure the parts are compatible.

I don't think it's possible to have everything from one manufacturer.

all from the same company huh? if you happen to see the same guy, tell him that you love nvidia GPU's, so ask him to build you one with everthing from nvidia, from cpu down to mouse.

Though he could probably be smart and hand you a Tegra based tablet :lol: 

My computer is a monument to brand diversity, Only similar brand components are the case and (most of the) fans (Coolermaster), and the water-cooling (XSPC, which will change soon).

I think the closest you could get to building a machine all from one brand would be ASUS, they seem to have fingers in every pie in the industry.

Of those two builds, I would go with the 2nd.
