Memory ram question

I have installed in my motherboard GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 775 - GA-X38-DS4 (rev. 1.0) the Kingston hyperx 2x2GB,in dual channel,2GB in yellow slot 1 + 2GB in yellow slot 3
(KHX6400D2B1K2/4G 4GB kit DDR2 800MHz Non-ECC (kit of 2 - 2GB) CL5-5-5-15 1.8V)
Kingston Technology Company - HyperX blu -
Today in my store room i found a box of Geil 2x1GB memory ram
(2GB 800MHz CAS4 (1GBX2-SKU#GB22GB6400C4DC)
GeIL Black Dragon DDR2 800 MHz CL4 Review - Page 1/4 | techPowerUp
So i installed also the Geil ram in dual channel,1GB in red slot 2 + 1GB in red slot 4
And now i have 6GB of ram,so far so good.
Questions:
Is that a good or bad idea?
Is there any better combination,between these ramS?

That looks OK to me. You have the memory installed correctly, and the channels are correctly populated so that CHA SL0 = CHB SL0 (Yellow) and CHA SL1 = CHB SL1 (Red).

Any 64-bit system will benefit from more RAM.

You can run Crucial's memory scanner that will advise on the best memory configuration for your motherboard.

Use the Crucial System Scanner software to find out what type of memory is in your computer
