I currently have 1GB (512x2) installed in my board. I want to upgrade to 2GB however I'm a bit confused. Should I get a 1GB stick or 2 512's? What's the difference? :?

It depends on the motherboard.

If you are not running dual channel I don't think it will make much difference but if you are it most certainly will.

To run dual channel you will need to get 2 more 512's, preferably the same as the ones you have now for compatibility.

The better option for dual channel would be to sell the 2 512's you have now and buy 2x 1Gb in a matched pair.
