  1. Some information about your motherboard (or laptop if this isn't for a desktop) would be helpful... but generally adding a 3rd stick will default your motherboard into single channel. You're better off doing nothing or upgrading to a 4gb (2x2gb setup)
  2. heres my mother board http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=ef0qgvMIwOUagAVl&content=specifications and you pretty much answered my question about choosing between dual channel and just 1 stick but i was also curious the ram in the computer now is gskill if i get a different brand it should still work right..... im wondering because i found this
