- Memory - install 1 or 2 or 3 sticks, or not?

In my Motherboard (Asrock? 2003?) manual, it says this for memory:
3 slots for DDR: DIMM1, DIMM2, DIMM3
I currently have a a PC 2700 (DDR 333) in DIMM1 - one slot used up.
I can't figure out if I can install more memory in the system - I do
have 2 slots free, but the manual says:
PC1600/PC2100 for 3 DDR DIMM slots, max 3GB
PC2700 for 2 DDR DIMM slots, Max 2 GB
PC 3200 for 1 DDR DIMM slot, Max 1 GB
Does this mean that if I cannot use third slot if I have a PC2700
setup in DIMM1?
Thanks in advance for any explanation!
I would like to insert a 1G DIMM in DIMM2 - not sure if I can do that
(I have a 512MB PC 2700 filling slot 1 - DIMM1).
Re: Memory - install 1 or 2 or 3 sticks, or not?
You should have an K7S8X mobo.
This chipset (SiS 7xx) cannot handle with more than 1 module WHEN
WORKING at DDR400, 2 at DDR333 and 3 at DDR266.
It´s not about memory specification but with current operating
frequency, that should be synchronous with CPU FSB.
If u have a 133mhz (266) based CPU u can use 3 sticks at 133mhz, even
they´re DDR400 labeled, maximum 1GB each. ´s
