I won't be doing video editing, I just don't feel technologies up to snuff when converting vhs to vcd/dvd. What kind of performance difference is there between this system with 1 stick of 512mb of Samsung PC 2700 ddr ram and 2 sticks?
(I'm gonna list every component incase each makes a difference)

Asus VIA A7V KT333 mobo
AMD Athlon XP 1900
ATI Radeon 8500 128mb DDR(retail)
Maxtor 80GB 7200rpm Quiet Drive
Lite On 40x12x48 CD-RW
Hercules Gaming Theater XP 6.1
Klipsch ProMedia 5.1 THX Audio System

Thanks for reading!

The difference is that you will have more than enough RAM no matter what you're doing. 512Mb is fine for almost anything except heavy graphics apps that use a lot of memory. Then you need to go with 1 or 2Gig of memory.

Looks like I have an extra $150 to play with then! I'd surely know by now if I was planning on using any heavy graphics apps. I mean, photosuite and what have you won't need a gig of ram will it?

Not necessarily. What I mean is more along the lines of Cad/Cam work and serious video/photo editing software. 512Mb of RAM should be fine for Photoshop and Paintshop and the like. 8)
