CAN YOU HAVE AN ARRAY OF MEMRY IN YOUR PC?

Question

I have 256M of Rambus rd ram memory in a dell computer. I want to add more memory. I know rd memory needs to be added in matched pairs. My question is; can I add two 256M to slots 3 and 4 and leave the original two 128M in slots 1 and 2 without any troubles? Also are there any suggestions on memory brands?
