Default RAM from different manufacturers and PC performance

I have got two different RAM ( from different vendors, but both of them DDR), both of them are512 MB (would it be difference if one of them 512MB DDR and other 1024MB DDR), would it affect the performance of a PC (P4 motherboard Intel ) ?

Because I have heard that it would be preferred to install RAM from same vendor

Any feedback ?

Technically the RAM doesnt need to come from the same vendor. Some computers are touchy and dont like it, but most are ok in my experience. As to the 1024MB question, it should work, depending on your mb. If its a p4, even the 478 socket, it should accept it
