You should check whether your motherboard is capable and if it is then get the correct ram.

I'm not too sure whether you're adding 3GB to run with your existing ram or citing it as total ram but if your total RAM happens to exceed 3.5GB, ie 4GB or more, then switch to a 64bit OS.

No reason why you shouldn't be able to. Just make sure the mobo has enough slots, and if you are adding RAM to already existing RAM, you have a 64bit OS.

It does have a 1GB RAM... So, does it mean that if i'm going to add a 2GB RAM, my OS must be in 64bit? My motherboard is ASUS P5S-MX SE...

You can add all the RAM you want to it, but if the OS is 32bit (so not 64bit), it can only use ~3.5GB of it.

Also mixing RAM is generally not a good idea. If you are going to put in a new kit, remove the existing kit beforehand.

If you have a 64bit OS, put in as much RAM as you need/want.
If you don't, put in 4GB of RAM, anymore would be a waste.

Just realized your mobo only supports DDR2 RAM.
Heres a 4GB kit of DDR2 RAM.
G.Skill 4GB 800Mhz DDR2. $50

Though replacing the PC outright at this stage wouldnt be a bad option. As Idroid has pointed out already, the system is quite old. It relies on defunct standards/interfaces like DDR2 and IDE, so the upgrade path has essentially none.
