Different sized sticks definately will hinder your overclocking, since the sticks most likely have different timings and other characteristics.

I am not sure if PNY overclocks well. Since it's only DDR 400, you need to set it on a divider anyways, and even more so with the mixed sticks.

PNY isnt a bad make of budget RAM however mixed sticks may give you slight issues. More RAM the better though as your system will benefit.

Its not so much the brand that sells the sticks but the actual chips used on the sticks

Indeed however usually a good brand knows to use good chips in MOST cases but not all though.

I have a PNY Optima PC3200 512MB stick paired with a Corsair Value Select PC3200 512MB. They're at 215.2MHz (stock 200, of course). This is with FSB 263MHz; my board's highest divider with two sticks in it is 5:6. I have not tested how high this RAM can actually go, but when i only had one stick it definitely wouldn't POST at 230 in 1:1.

Well i would be very surprised if you did manage to get it to 1:1 if i where to be honest.
