so 1 stick of 1gb (value) vs. 2 sticks of 256 performance ram?? Well I would go for 2 sticks of 512 value, as it is cheaper.

But to answer your question one stick of 1gb is better in games.

If your mobo support dual channel, then is better to have 2 sticks of ram running in dual channel mode.
If not, just get 1 stick of ram.
