Windows 7: Upgrading computer memory deciding help.

Upgrading computer memory deciding help.

I currently run window 8, and I only have 2gb of ram. Im running cosair 1333mhz 1.5v 2slots x 1gb ram each.
But my question is can I run a third slot of 2gbx1slot and if I can will it be slowed because im using an odd amount? I only need around 4gb and I feel that running 6gb is a waste of money.
my motherboard is the intel dx38bt, im a bit confused because it lablels the slot like
1xa (memory slots)
1xb
2xa
2xb

and my ram sticks are in (1xa) and (2xa), and if I do buy 1 slot, would i just stick it in any left port?
