Default upgrading memory

I was thinking of sticking in some more ram, I already have 512MB DDR RAM, does it matter what type of memory is already installed? Can I have different brands? I have been using some cad programs for work and reckon another 512 would help.

amd athlon xp 2400+
saphire radeon 9800 pro 128MB
SoundBlaster Audigy2 ZS Platinum 7.1
80GB Hard drive
19" HP f1904 TFT

Also, stick with the same kind of memory. So get another 512mb PC2100, or w/e type that might be.
Finished With TF.
