The short answer is yes you can.

But - isn't there always a but - the memory must be compatible, ie correct latency etc and your board must support another gig of RAM.

"can i put a 1 gig stick of pc3200 with a different brand name with the 1 gig corsair stick." - yes, should be OK (I've 2 different memory brands happily running in dual-channel)

"if so will i notice any drop in performance compaired to buying another corsair stick." - if the spec is not as good as the Corsair, all the memory is likely to run at the slower spec. You probably won't 'notice' any drop in performance as it's likely to be miniscule.

Just make sure it's not some cheap 'high density' module though click here. G
