Fit memory in matching pairs?

I've been offered a 256mb sodimm module to add to my existing one to double my laptop's memory.

They are both Hynix chips and look identical but one is pc4200/533mhz the other pc5300/667mhz.

Would this be detrimental or should I fit exact pairs?

Should be okay, but both will run only at the lower speed ie PC4200/533mhz.
