As Jonah pointed out, the added range you would get from that extra 50fps spring would be minimal. A better barrel and hop-up will definitely increase range, and if it's a good barrel it can add velocity as well.

To answer your question about the springs though: Yes, brand can matter. The type of alloy in the spring, the pitch of the spring, heat treating, and consistency can effect velocity, durability and a myriad of other things.
