    it sounds like your board may be in dual channel right now w/ the 2x256 sticks
    if you want to keep it like that you should get 2x512 sticks and put them in, check your mother board manual to see what slots the sticks have to be in for dual channel to work, you could still just add the 1x512 stick but that would def disable dual channel on the board.

    what board do you have?
    amd 1700, biostar m7ncg 400, hitachi deskstar 120 8mb , 512 pc2700, liliput 7"
    now to put it all together

    this is the break down
    slot 1 512mb (the one you already have)
    slot 2 another 512 stick that i will want to purchase
    slot 3 & 4 for future upgrades

    or
    slot 1 512mb (the one you already have)
    slot 2 256 stick that u will want to purchase
    slot 3 another 256 stick that u will also want to purchase
    slot 4 also left for upgrading

    either way u will end up with 1024 or 1gb of ram, but the first way will be a better bet and less costly

    you can do this, but but in your case it would be more like slot 1-512, 2-256 3-256
    amd 1700, biostar m7ncg 400, hitachi deskstar 120 8mb , 512 pc2700, liliput 7"

    minor correction - I currently have 2 x 256, but I understand that point
    I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
