Default RAM Speed Performance

i just upgraded my system's RAM from 1 256mb PC2700 stick and 2 128mb PC2100 sticks to 2 256mb PC2700 sticks (dual-channeled) and 1 128mb PC2100 stick. do you think i'd have better performance removing that last 128mb PC2100 stick since it's slowing down my other RAM or should i keep it? Would removing the RAM slow up my system or would it speed it up since the PC2700 RAM can actually reach it's peak performance?

As you said, the PC2100 will underclock the PC2700 to match the speeds... I say remove it, give it a try, you'll hardly miss the extra 128 megs...
