Hello all,

I have 2 extra RAM slots and I want to put 3 Gigs of Ram in my computer. Since I have a 32 bit OS I don't want 4 Gigs. Should I get 2 512 MB sticks or just one 1 gig stick?
I currently have 2 one Gig sticks in there. They are Samsung's. Should I try to get Samsung's again?

Thanks!

EDIT: I am running PC5300's DDR2 currently

consult the manual for your motherboard. they usually will have a recommended layout for any memory situation. i know some motherboards are picky and want memory in pairs.

I don't have the manual for the motherboard. I bought the computer from Office Depot(I was going to build one but this deal was hard to pass up). And all HP.com gave me was the Specifications on the motherboard. And the manufacturer's website doesn't have my Motherboard listed. I was leaning toward getting 2 512's.
