Default NF7-S Memory

I will be putting together a system within the next week or so using a
NF7-S. I want to run dual channel. I will be using it to surf the internet,
play Tomb Raider & Madden, & use MS Office. I would like to use 1Gb of
HyperX memory, but it has shot up $75 higher in the last week. Will I suffer
much by using HyperX 512 (256X2) or using 1GB (512X2) of WinBond PC3200
(found he http://www.hardcorecooling.us/product.asp?3=419 )?
Thanks!
Heath

If you try to run several instances of all the programs you mention at
the same time then you might see a difference between 512 M and 1G of
memory.

75? You must be shopping somewhere besides the Internet.

Have you considered just buying a single stick and then upgrade later?
The price of computer goods (and memory) is notorious for dropping
after christmas. You could upgrade to a second stick in march or
april.

At shop.kingston.com it went from $176 to $253 for 1GB Kit HyperX DDR 400MHz
2-3-2-6-1.
