The best results are always achieved when two of the same Ram are run.

It would greatly help your PC but if your motherboard has dual channel capability then you would be better off with two 256 Meg sticks or 2 512 Meg sticks. If your motherboard has dual channel capabitlity and you put different size RAM then you should check you mobo documentation as to what is the best manner to insert them.
