With my two current 512 sticks, should I get two more 512s or 2 1GB sticks? Will having 4 of the same sticks of RAM increase performance more? I've heard that two 512s in dual channel are better than a 1GB stick.

Yes two 512's are better than a single 1GB because you get the added benefit of dual channel by having two matching sticks.

If you don't mind spending a little more, i would go with two 1GB sticks. That way your not filling up all your ram slots incase you want to upgrade again.
