This also depends on if it is cheaper to get that stick of 512 from ABS rather than BestBuy. I have no idea how much discount you'd be getting.
I would do that too...if ABS offered a 512MB of 333 Mhz memory.
But they don't. They offer one stick of 512MB, 266 Mhz memory, or two sticks of 512MB of 333 Mhz memory. There's no middle ground.
That's what I had to do, BTW. I did the 512MB of 266Mhz memory b/c I already bought a stick of 512MB of 333Mhz RAM earlier and I didn't want have to deal w/ the hassle of selling what I had. It still runs things fine, though.
As for the RAM, I'd do the 1GB of RAM now, since you don't have to worry about any compatibility problems, which is <ahem> what seems to be happening w/ my aftermarket stick. For graphics, more RAM is definitely better.
