Default Adding more ram

I currently have 2 sticks of 512mb pc 3200 frequency 200mhz. I want to add one stick gig of ram to my comp. I wanted to stick to the same brand and same speed. Would this stick of 1gig be ok to match with what I currently have ??

So this is what I had in mind

Heres a pic from CPU-Z just in case.

I know he only has 3 slots, but just to satisfy my curiosity, if he did have 4 slots are you able to have 3 sticks? Or do you have to have either 2 or 4 sticks?

Just try it and see what happens. Put it in the correct way too and make sure your grounded, unless you want a redo of what I did to my RAM stick.
