    I heard that the graphic chip on the MacBook is performing better if the RAM is paired... So having 1 GB (2 x 512) would be sightly better than 1.25 GB (256 + 1GB)

    Any thoughts ?

    Basically the Extra 256 is 1 plus point
    But Pairing memory is 1 plus point

    So they'll balance each other out really.

    Benchmarks I've seen only put the improvement at about 4%.

    Having a gig (having enough ram) is hugely more important than pairing it.
