If your machine can use 2 gigs of ram, you will see a performance increase. Check your motherboard specs and see how much ram it will take.

Yes, if you only have 512MB RAM, upgrading to 2GB will make a huge difference.

my motherboard got 4 slot, spec written maximun up to 8gb. I
wan upgrade ram because if my budget enough, i will change
to c2q 9400, the ram can move to new pc.

Based on the information given at intel website, my
motherboard can support ddr2 800 ram.

But, inside my motherboard box got a paper notice that when
choosing DDr2-800 memor to run on intel dektop boards
based on intel 965 express chipset family, ONLY DDR2-800
memory supporting JEDEC approved 1.8v operation with
timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 is supported. Any other timings or
voltages above 1.8v are not supported and may result in
memory initialization error.

I dont know what its meaning.
Can i buy Kingston KVR 800 PC5300 2GB ?
Can use at this motherboard??

Next question,
DDR2-667 , DDR2-800, DDR2-1033
Their performance diffrence a bit or much?
Because i heard ppl say 800 and 1033 diffrence double, it is
ture?

Check this page http://www.intel.com/support/mother...

Scroll down there will be a list of tested memory for your board.

That means if u buy ddr2 800 make sure the ram u buy use 1.8v and has 6-6-6 or 5-5-5 timings, the correct ram 4 your c2q 9400 is ddr2 667 pc2 5336 but if you like overclocking cpu u better get ddr2 800 pc2 6400

EDIT: the performance difference btwn ddr2 800/667 is so small

What the message means is that you need to avoid any high performance RAM modules that require higher voltages or faster timings.

Buy off the QVL linked above in #5 and you should be fine.
