In terms of memory, upgrading to a complete 2 gigs from 1.5 gigs would not make a significant difference.
But with 1.5 gigs, depending on how you have implemented it, you MAY have disabled dual channel operation, thus cutting your memory speed in half. In that regard, going to 2 gigs might restore dual channel operation.
[If your 1.5 gigs is 1GB + 512GB, you likely have an issue; if your 1.5GB is 2x512 + 2x256, PROPERLY INSTALLED IN THE CORRECT SOCKETS, then 1.5GB could still be dual channel.]

I've also upgraded to Windows Vista Home Edition. I've read that Vista runs best on 2048MB of RAM. Would upgrading to a complete 2Gig make a noticeable difference in performance. Most of my usage is keeping several windows open at the same time, Web Browser, Mediaplayer, Outlook or Windows Mail, uTorrent, Firefox (with several tabs open at the same time.)
