Filling a 3rd memory slot of a Dell B Series desktop

  1. I purchased what was described as a 'Dell 3588D Motherboard Slot 1 Dimension
    XPS-B' motherboard from eBay. It uses Rambus memory sticks, but has 3
    memory slots to fill, while every motherboard of that type I have researched only
    has 2 memory slots. In addition, most of the Series B desktops I looked into
    seem to be limited to 512MB of memory.
    Because my motherboard has 3 memory slots, would I be allowed to insert three 256MB memory sticks, giving me a total memory of 768MB? I'm told that you should
    not exceed the required limit of memory. Would someone care to comment on my
    predicament?

    Just try it, it'll either work or it won't work.
