    slapping a 3rd still will remove dual channel, and you will lose a chuck of speed.

    ktr is spot on. you'll loose dual channel, which will seriously decrease speed. now, if you upgrade in identical matched pairs, you should be able to retain the dual channel. you have to weigh ram capacity versus speed (capacity if you do a lot of multitasking, etc, speed if you play games and do other intense tasks like that)
