No, you can't.  Systems that use DDR-2 can't take DDR-3 -- so even if you have just one module now, you can't add a DDR-3.  Be sure that when you do upgrade, check to make sure your current RAM is 1X2G -- it may well be 2 1G modules (in which case you must remove them to upgrade, using DDR-2 of course, NOT DDR-3).
