I wouldn't think so no. That should be okay. I'd make sure that you grouped them still though, having the 512mb ones next to each other, and the 256mb ones next to each other.

I used to have 1x512MB, and 3X256MB, and I never had any problems - took me to a strange amount (1.25GB) but I never had any problems, ran nice and fast.

I have never heard of Socket487, surely you mean Socket478?

Yeah, It really shouldn't give you any problems, I have never heard of any RAM problems with socket 478 processors. If you do have problems, it is most likely not the processor. 1.5 Gigs of RAM... Nice.

No, providing the ram and m/board are compatible, I'm presently running 4 x 512

If the board supports dual channel then you will need to have the same size ram sticks in the same coloured slots for it to work.

You can't dual channel that way. If you want to get the most and dual-channel, install your memory sticks according to this diagram.

5 2 5 2
1 5 1 5
2 6 2 6

I know this is all going to mash together, but put your sticks in in that order, from left, to right.
