PC3200 will work fine. Even if you can't run it at 200mhz it will self downclock to 166mhz. But it should be able to run 200mhz without a problem just make sure the ram ratio in the bios is 1:1.

No the memory must be of the same capacity and usually they have to be form the same maker. Dual channel can be tricky. I have heard of people that could not get it to work unless they got same make and batch.

You could run 512x2 and 256x2 just make sure that you install the dimms in the right slots the order does matter.

Then 2x256 will work on dual channel and 1x 512 will work "alone", but all sticks(if inserted in the same mobo) will operate in 2700 speed...

The manufactors of the system went as cheap as possible. 1 256 cost less then 2 128. Plus 128 are almost non-existent now a days.
