Well, originally, it came with 1GB DDR2 800, but i had another stick of 2 GB DDR2 667. Would I be correct in assuming it'd be better to have the 2GB?

I would go with the 2GB of slower ram unless you were intentionally trying to run a synthetic benchmark that tested memory speed

I agree with 4.

Run the 2 would be best for system performance.

More lead time off the 'mind killer', which is always hard drive.
