For games and Win XP in general.... what is better?

1 gig DDR RAM at 400 or 1.5 gig DDR RAM at 333?

My mainboard cannot have both so I must choose between these two options with what hardware I currently have! :(

If its dual channel then 1.5gig @ 333 is probably forcing you to single channel at a significant performance loss, if its single channel then there probably isn't a huge performance loss and for gaming more ram generally helps more than faster RAM, and you won't notice the difference between 333 and 400MHz in windows stuff unless you do a lot of media encoding, 3D rendering, etc.
