too much memory

  diesel9 15:24 20 Jan 2008

please help i have a GA-7ZMM Motherboard with 3 memory slots i have recently upgraded from 2 128MB to 3 512MB SDRAM, PC133. However when i did a scan of my system it said my motherboard capacity was 1024MB,when i go into my system properties it lists my ram as 1.5 GB.I am running XP Proffessional service pack 2.Is the extra memory surplus or is it useful?. Should i take it out of my pc? thanks in anticipation!

Keep it - the more the better as a general rule.

Ooops - sorry, wrong advice - you should remove one of the sticks.
