well i dont think you can do either of them. i do believe they use different "form factors" or DIMM types and therefore are not backwards compatible.
i guess that's a good reason if you don't plan on upgrading. but in 3-4yrs. your gfx card might not even be supported by the games. it wont matter if its 512MB...the core/memory gotta keep up and it's gotta be supported. but it should hold you over for a long time, as most games will still support older cards in the future i'm sure.
