Depends on your motherboard type. What kind of motherboard do you have?

But usually a Pentium III motherboard has 3 Dimm slots and each slot should be able to take at least 128mb. Therefore 3x128 = 384mb of rams.

440BX Chipset / Motherboard
I saw the three slots and thought that, about he 128mb sticks., but also considered what if they were 256mb sticks. That gives a possible 768mb. Do you think that would still work?

check in your motherbaord manaul or on website. the max ram size is manafacture dependent as well as chipset depandent. there is normally a max module size as well as a max totall ram.
however i think (but i havnt tested it yet) you can go over the limit by use regeisted ram.
