Why is this? Memory has seriously come down in price. You can get 2gb (2x1gb) for around $40 at newegg.com. Or even 4gb (2x2gb) for around $75.
I agree though with freestyler though, something must be seriously wrong if Maple Story can't play on your pc as is. What's the status of your Aero setting ... on/off? Ensuring it is off, should help in relieving stress on your current memory.
