Sure, you can add different RAM, as long as your motherboard/chipset is compatible. Check your motherboard's RAM list.

It is best, however, to have your RAM in matched pairs for dual-channel motherboards, and matched triples with triple channel motherboards.

You could also try Crucial's online scanner to determine the exact model of memory that is acceptable for your system.
Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.
