i dont see how you planon playing games with one gig. then when you go to upgrade your goingto have to buy ALL new stuff
I have only 1 GB of RAM, and I can play games just fine. I'm not saying he won't notice the very slight difference in performance, but you make it sound like he has no hope of playing ANY games with only 1 GB of RAM. Depending on how long it will be before he has mony to upgrade again, I'd have to agree about getting a single 1GB stick of RAM. But if the guy's not going to upgrade for a year, go with 2x512MB.
One other thing though, why is everyone reccomending DDR800, when he can get DDR2 667 for way less? DDR2 800 is not a prerequisite to run a C2d, or AM2 for that matter, system.
