    i have three sticks of shitty pc2700 two 512's and 1 256 none of them are matched but, if i keep jus the two 512's its dual-channel according to my BIOS. but would it better to have dual-channel with the loss of 256 or better with overall more ram?

    I would go with the dual channel. Can you oc the ram at all?? If you could get it up near DDR400 speeds it would make a nice diff..
