Mixing of RAM is never recommended as it often does not work without issues.

2N/2T vs 1N/1T can be very slightly but unnoticeably slower, and much more stable.  Run 1T if you can, 2T if you can't.

Mixing of RAM, especially DDR3 RAM is never recommended because it often will not function without issues. With RAM prices so low, buy one matched tested 8 GB. RAM kit and be happy.
