From what I understand, in the past you had to match your ram...
If you have one gig in one slot you need another one gig in the next one.
The computer I use right now had 3 gigs in it (1X1g, 1X2g), and it was having all sorts of conflicts.
I removed the one gig chip, and have had virtually (lol) zero problems.
It is correct that you can have up to 3 gigs, and I believe you can have 4, but it won't utilize the total.
sidenote... I use my cpu for music production, and don't have too much of an issue. Of course, video production tends to require more of a
heavyweight I suppose.
