Does having 2 memory of 512 MB improve performance over a single 1 GB Mem?

Does having 2 memory of 512 MB improve performance over a single 1 GB Mem?

"Besides , I want to upgrade my RAM of my Laptop which is a Compaq Presario v 2000 model .
I already have a 512 MB RAM in it and the performance of the Laptop is decent for my browsing work etc . Should I go for a new 1 GB RAM or would a additional 512 MB ( new ) give good performance ? I dont want to spent much on old laptops , just need decent performance .
Just want to know ur opinion ."

"if the motherboard supports hyperchannel, there would be a slight better performance having 2x512mb memories
but, if you can get a 1gb memory with faster bus speed, it is better ;)"
