or just to pull out 1gb ram but thats not what I want to do and I think its not good to use 3ram on dual core,or Im wrong?
my processor is 64 dual core
Read this - it explains it. Your situation is completely normal for a 32bit system. That's why I do not bother to put more than 3GBs into my 32bit boxes.

PS: Nothing wrong with 3GBs as long as they are pairs (2x1GB and 2x512MB).
