If the 1 GB doesn't cost much over than 512, then go for it, but if it isn't, 512 mb is still quite plenty enough for web surfing / gaming /etc.

well i was going to use it for gaming/video editing and they cost about the same, rdram is faster but 1gb ddr ram seems about equal to 512 rdram

Hmm... I have 512 MB DDR 2100, I use 3DS MAX 5 and all that good stuff, anyway, Ive never used my mem more than 300 MB.

I do gaming to the extreme and graphics design, but the peak has been 300 MB.

I would get the Athlon XP 2600+. Either 512Mb or 1Gb should be suitable. Get the 1Gb if you can. :)
