I mixed some RAM, should I be afraid?
 
So I bought these stick of RAM for $50, and I have added ONLY one of them so far to my PC.

The RAM seems to be working just fine, but I was looking around and I saw ppl saying that I shouldn't mix ram with different timings and frequencies.

What do you guys think about this?

My current specs can be seen below.

if anything it just wont post or wont be stable, i wouldn't worry about any real damage, it should just run at the frequency of the lowest stick if im not mistaken

You should be fine. The BIOS should simply set everything down to the lowest common denominator. If you've manually set your BIOS settings for RAM, that may be different.
