well ofcourse the more ram the better. But if I were u I'd just get another 2x512 of dual channel ram, then u will have 2gb of ram which will be enough for now. And it won't cost u that much either.

If I understood correctly u want to know if u will notice any difference between 2x512 and 2x512 + 1024. If so then yes u will notice the difference.

ok thanks! One more question will running 2 sticks of 1024 in Dual channel be faster than running 4 sticks of 512?
