  1. I have a K8N NEO4-F MOBO and I have 2x512 of CORSAIR D400 KIT TWINX1024-3200C2 R. I have an AMD CPU AMD 64 |3500+ ATHLON 64 939. I want to add a gig of memory and was wondering, if I can just buy 1 gig of regular ram, eveything being the same except not dual. Will it slow my pc down to have 1 gig of dual channel memory and 1 gig of regular memory?

    Upgrade memory

    I don't want to run all dual channel. I am running 2 512's at dual and wanted to just get a 1 gig ram stick that is not dual channel. So from what I read, it should be okay and I will still have 2 gigs of memory, right?

    Using 3 RAM modules will take it out of dual channel mode and, in fact, MSI recommends not using 3 modules because it may be unstable. I have the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum but the same applies to the K8N Neo4 F.

    be careful. That is true only for that board. I have a K7M2 Delta 2 and it works in dual channel with 3 sticks.
