Do you have to of the same RAM sticks?

Question

I have a AMD 64 bit 2.0 GHTZ processor and I have 512 mb ram and I was wondering in everyone's opinion if an extra 512 mb ram would really improve the quality of my computer speed or if it would be barely noticable?

If it supports the dual channel mode for your RAM And you get another RAM stick that is the exact same as the one you already have model number and everything It should improve your speed by about 30 percent But the RAM has to be identical for the dual channel mode will work.
