    I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in my 2.16Ghz white iMac, which currently just has the default 1GB (2x512MB).
    Which combination do you think would be better?

    (2 GB) + (512 MB) = 2.5GB

    or

    (1 GB) + (1 GB) = 2GB as a matching pair

    Or do you think there'll be very little noticeable difference?
    (I mostly use Photoshop and Illustrator)

    TIA :)

    First off, you get what you can afford. That being said, matched pairs are better. Of course 2x2 would be best if your Mac can use that amount.
