Don't worry if they aren't from the same litter. The key issue isn't their litter status, it's their ages. If you get your males as babies---under 4 months old, they should bond well with one another, especially if you get them at the same time. In fact, even if they don't exactly get along at the pet store, the stressful ride home sharing a cage in the car will probably be enough to bond them with each other.
It's when they start feeling the hormones at about 4 months that they start showing their cheerioats and you have more problems with aggression towards new rats. But, even that could be worked with depending on assorted factors.
So, basically if you get two little small boys you'll probably have no problems. I love, love, love my big squishy lazy males. They're big puddins. There are many key differences between having males vs. females, but if introduced young, aggression isn't one of them.
