Not much. Maybe 1-2, 5 tops.

2x1 GB CL3 PC3200 would be better for you in the long run.

yea, i wouldnt worry about speed. id upgrade to 2GB. it should become standard i would say within a year or two. (still have a while)

however, i must say, with an X2 and 2GB, performance is incredible.

I get a little more money, so now I'm able to buy 2x1024modules
What do you recomend:
Corsair Twinx2048-3200C2(2-3-3-6) or
Corsair Twinx2048-4000PT(3-4-4-8)?

If your not intending to overclock .... Corsair Twinx2048-3200C2(2-3-3-6) are the way to go, and will be faster with the better timings.

What I am using right now, can't fault it whatsoever for stability.

Can even tighten them timings more so i've discovered.
