That would only work if the board supported 1G sticks. As far as I can
see, most only support 512M sticks, meaning 512M x 2. One of the only
integrated chipsets I know to support the most RAM is the SiS7xx ones
which support 1.5G and 3 sticks. Obviously they intended (and thus is the
limit) for you to use 512M x 3 to achieve that. Since the manufacturers
only include 2 slots... well, you get the picture :-/
