Default Dual Channel Question

Right now I'm running dual with my OCZ Platinum, w/ 1 gb, 2x512, I want another gig, since I see computer games now are recommending 1gb, and soon they will be above it so I wanna run my ram @ 2gb's now, but heres what I wondered.

Can I get same ram and just fill the other 2 slots? It would work that way right?

Well heres the other thing. What if I get a differnet Dual Channel brand type then my previous pair and put em in with the ones I have now. Would it screw up....

ALL IN ALL SHOUDL I REALLY UPGRADE to another GB?
