So three sticks in total right? I don't think you can utilize the dual channel feature. Either use 2 sticks or 4. You can have 3 stick, total 6gb of ram, but not the most optimal solution.

You can make sure that they are in the same colour slots I.e both corsair ones in the yellow or both in the red for best performance smile.gif

I am running now 2 sticks. 1GB/stick.
So if i will buy 4 more it will be 4 sticks:2x1GB+2x2GB.
And the new 4GB sticks are the same as my 2GB sticks i use now.Please correct me if i am wrong.

So if you have same two sticks for red-slots and other two same sticks on yellow-slots you are golden.
