how much ram for mac mini
so i picked up a 1.66 core duo/512/80/SD today
and man is the thing slow, in gerneral most things are smother than my old 12" 1.33 PB, but the mini will stutter A LOT.
So how much ram do I need? is 1GB enough, or should I just go to 2gigs?
Also what is the performance hit if I don't use matched sodimms?

the performance hit will be negligble if you don't get "matched" sodimms. However you do want to use 2 sticks of the same size and specs. i.e. 2 x 512 or 2 x 1GB not 1 512 and 1 GB. but if they are 2 1GB that weren't tested and matched together you probably won't even notice the difference then if they were.
I know this because Tyler knows this.

Mine ran like a whole new machine with 1GB. I moved it up to 1.5GB yesterday, and it feels even snappier now. So, I would say go with 1GB for normal use - and max it out if you want the best possible performance.
