with 3 slots on motherboard and 512 mb capacity, does it make any difference what size sticks are put in and in what order? ie: 1 512mb, 2 128mb and 1 256 or 2 256. and also is there any difference in what order they go in slots.

ok
i see iff you have lets say 256meg and 128mag
you shoud put the 256mag in dimm slot (1) on your motherboard
and the 128meg in dimm slot (2)
the hiest ram modul shud go in ram slot (1) the lower ram modul in ram
slot(2) and so on.... ;)

Despite what batman suggests (if we could read his post accurately!) there are limitations.

Some older boards simply can't read 512 MB sticks for instance.
Some require single sided, some require double sided ... and the limitations go on.

Referring to the motherboard manual is the best way to find out.

Some require special placement, some don't. I habitually install RAM from largest to smallest since some few boards require that order so it works on the ones that don't, too.
