Default 1GB to 1.5GB memory ?

Currently i have 2 X 512 PC-2700 Kingston value ram and want to add more. I have heard that if you run 3 sticks the first 2 wont run in dual channel.

My question is if i add another stick will i see any kind of performance increase or will the non-dual channel affect it to the point where it would not make sense to put a 3rd stick in?

Or would it be better to move that memory to my other comp and buy 2 1GB sticks (i dont want to have to spend the money unless its realy worth it)??

Thanks for any info

AMD 64 2800+ @2.21mhz
Chaintech VNF3-250
2X512MB PC-2700 Kingston
Leadtek FX5700 Ultra at 550/1056
500 Watt power
Thermaltake WinGo Xaser III

your money would be better spend by replacing the ram u have now with pc3200 ram, or a better gfx card. that is if your mobo supports pc3200 ram, my guess would be that all athlon64 bourds support it, but im to lazy to check.
