Default quick question about updating notebook mem.

i have 512mb in my notebook right now in 1 slot and theres 2 slots
but since i have shared video memory it takes 128 off the 512 and slows down the performance. i could reduce it to take of 16mb off the main memory but then quality would suck. so i was wondering if my computer could take this kind of memory

or would it be worth the extra 30 for this

i was a cheap solution cause i dont really want to waste too much money on it but i want it to perform a bit better so which would be a wise choice. i dunno if ill be wasting my money on the more expensive one if its just as good as the cheaper one.

Memory Type DDR

Memory Size 512MB

Memory Speed DDR333 (PC2700)

Memory Slots (Total) 2
if it helps my laptop is a toshiba p35-s611

btw im totally clueless about memory crap so can anyone tell me if those are compatible with my computer and if you know of any other good deals out there please tell me

Well if this is the labtop you have here - http://www.streetprices.com/Electron...SP3081219.html
