Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

Your motherboard will run your memory at the speed of the slowest module's interface. That of yours being in slot 3 at 133MHZ which comes out to PC 2100.
Remove the other two and you'll get your full speed of PC3200 which is 200MHZ with a 2x multiplier. DDR stands for Double Data Rate and works like this:
DDR3200 = 200MHZ * 2
= 400MhZ * 8 bits
= 3200 OR 3.2 Gigabytes per second bandwidth. Hence PC3200.
That's why CPUZ is saying your memory is running at 200MhZ. Because that's the base frequency at which your two Kingston modules are operating.
However, if you have PC3200 in slots 1 and 2, and PC2100 in slot 3, the bandwidth for the other two sticks will be limited to 133MHZ (*2) which is what your PC2100 operates at. CPUZ will tell you what your memory is capable of, not necessarily what it's currently operating at. Note the little warning at the top of the report.
Hope this helps!

After looking at your specs I'd say leave it in. You wouldn't notice an improvement if you took it out since you're only running with a socket 462 processor. So go ahead, leave it in, it won't hurt anything.
it may be causing you a big performance hit, that looks like a 333/166 fsb mobo, if the cpu is 333 then it will run better if the memory can run in synch with it
everest home free/overclock under computer section will show the details
In some rare instances where the extra 512 megs are needed then it will slow you down to remove it
