I recently got a C2D 6300 and an intel g965 board and i am on a tight budget and was wondering how i should buy my ram.

I eventually want 2 gigs but only have money for one right now since i already bought everything else. my question is what would be better for me, to buy 2x512 or 1x1gig. if i choose the 2x512 will it run weird with another 2x512. or can i just get away with 1gig. i know dual channel is the way to go, but how much of a difference would it make?

thanks guys
