well, your mobo should have dual channel so 3 gigs would work, they would all have to run at the same speed, and timings

3gb is overkill. 2gb is more than enough for the time being. I would not get 3gb.

Rams cheap, the more the better. 2GB is good enough for now.

If you have the money for 3GB, why not.

Because it is overkill. It will hurt your performance.

This is correct. It will bog down your memory controller.Plus running 3 sticks might make it go slower by changing timings to compensate for cpu loads.
