What games will you be running and expect power difference from the new RAM?

Your Graphics Card is reasonable (for an ATi :P), so RAM could be useful unless you plan on saving up for a new Graphics Card? In which case that could be a superior option.

well 1 gigabyte used to be unbelievable now its almost standard lol
most games are competing in graphics

The highest graphic game ever made is EverQuest 2 which is by far the 1337est game eva lol

yes RAM will reall help with your game, if you play multiplayer, when you load maps you will always be first to load up compared to the other 512ers. It really makes a difference, go for it.
