It has to do with the dual channel issue. To tell you the truth, there's really no benefit to running memory in dual channel mode compared to single channel. All the benefits people spout are from synthetic benchmarks, which don't translate into real world benefits.

You could always give both scenarios a try. Run it with 1.25GB and if you seem to be having some stability issues, yank one stick out and run it as 1GB. Though I should warn you, getting a "feel" for stability isn't an objective test. What's most likely going to happen is that you'll "feel" as though one way is more stable when in reality both are working exactly the same. In my personal opinion, stick with 1.25GB until you decide to upgrade to 2GB.
