Yup it does matter in the sense of dual-channeling. When you do upgrade to 2 different sticks of different speed and size, you lose the dualchanneling speed....until, lets say, when you put another identical 1gb stick to make 2gb in the future. But as for your temporary case, a 1gb stick will work with a 512mb stick. And yes, they are 533mhz and nothing higher :/ .... i have a 9300 myself and modded the ____ out of it
