Either way would be good. It depends on what you want to spend.

I would recommend getting 2x1gbs sticks. chances are you wont be able to find the exact ram it came with and mixing sticks is never good.

Use your old one for a key chain. I hang one in my rear view mirror in my car. People ask me what its for and I tell them it makes it go faster.
