    If you have three slots you may be able to use them all. Check you motherboard manual, it should list what size mem sticks you can use. My motherboard has three slots for PC-133 DIMMs. I've had 128's in with 256's in with 512 meg sticks. My max supported is 3@512 meg. Right now I have two 512's and one 256 for 1280.

    Its a touchy situation, some ram does'nt play well with others. Try it, it may recognize it but then you may have random freezes and blue screens if its not compatible.
    But its worth a shot
