Even though your not asking me i would like to butt in and say that 2gigs of ram is alot more ram than 1gig. In theory you can run 2x as many programs but only if they dont max out your cpu usage. If your looking for a performance boost upgrade to 2gigs of ram for now.

On the 9 the upgrade is trivial so I did it. I found the memory for ~20$ so I'm happy with it. But it didnt make a glaring performance change.

Maybe you could try using a program like XSlimmer or Monolingual to strip out the old PowerPC legacy code from the Universal Binaries and other parts of the OS? I found that it gave me back much needed space on my DM9 and real Macs, and gave me a bit of a performance increase on the 9.
Less bloat is always a good thing.
