Matching Memory

I am configuring a new DL320 G5. And i purchased (2) 2G memory modules. To my surprise the server arrived with a 1G memory module already installed. I am aware of the importance that used to be placed on installing matching memory modules and i always purchase it in that manner. but in this case should i put all 5G in the server or just remove the 1G that came in the unit. Thanks for anyone's help.

It will be fine :
2 X 2 Gb
2 X 512 Mb

This way it going to be super.

There is a performance benefit in having a purely interleaved configuration which may mean having to remove the 1Gb dimm in slot 1.

If you don't have any major performance requirements you can leave this installed.

Please see the attached DL320G5 memory confiuration guideline.
