ideally, you should add two matched sticks in the two slots you have (i'm 99% sure you only have two). you could add one 1G stick in place of one of your 512 sticks, but you will most likely only see speed increases in non-graphics intensive programs. graphics intensive programs for some reason like matched pairs.

there are a few threads about this matching phenomenon - i'll try to dig one up.
