Quick Question...Adding memory to a Server

Hi, I know this is a simple question, but I just want to bounce my concern off of you guys/gals.

My boss wants me to add 2x256MB PC3200 Non ECC to a server that currently has 2x512MB PC3200 Non ECC.  It is running Dual Channel Mode.  Correct me if I am wrong, but I was always under the impression that you should run similar size, speed, CAS Latency, etc of memory if you choose to run in Dual Channel Mode.

I want to explain to my boss we should just purchase 2x512MB PC3200 Non ECC and add that vs. the 2x256MB.

So, what are your thoughts?

Thanks for your time.

Bob
