I have a Dell 4700 with one stick of DDR2, 256 meg, 3200, running at 400 in slot #1 on the MB. I just bought a stick of DDR2, 256 meg, 3200, running at 533. I am pretty sure I need it put this newer stick in slot #3. Question-will I get Dual channel performance or not ? Thanks !!

If your dell MB is set up for dual channel than you will get it! Also, your MB will clock both your memory sticks to the lower RAM frequency (400) Chances are your MB is set up so slot 1 and 3 are pairs and two and four are pairs so ur prolly right... put the second stick in slot 3. You should see a message like "memory increase... running in dual channe" during your boot. There are ways you can see in windows if your mem is running in dual channel. Google a mem tester or something.
