no problemo. even if they had different specs the higher one will compensate to the other ram.

personally I wouldn't do thisthough. but if the question is will it work then most definitely.

Unfortunately when trying to mix RAM, especially DDR3 RAM, it's a crap shoot. That's why it's never recommended to mix. You can try it. It won't hurt anything but you may be throwing you're money away. It's best to just buy one properly matched, tested RAM kit of the size you need, typically 4 GB. or 8 GB. total max.
