if you have 3 sticks it wont be dual channel

Corsair XMS is cheap ram, I would just get another stick of it

They have to be in matched pairs (2x 512 etc). 2 will run in dc and 3 will run in sc. add another 512 like Chirs just suggested above and run 2 gig in dc. Memory is cheap for now so go for it!
