    That depends on your motherboard. Check your manual and it will give you the lay out of what combinations it can handle. Example: DDR SS 512 in slot 1 and 2. DDR DS 512 in slots 1 and 3. (SS =single sided, DS = double sided)

    If youre sure the new 1 GB ram is a 184 pins then you should be fine with leaveing in one of the 512 Ram cards.. THOUGH.. youre MOBO will automaticly run both the cards as the speed of the slowest card.. meaning: if you have one 512 with 266 Mhz and one 1024MB with 400Mhz.. they will both run at the slowest speed.. 266 Mhz
