    No, do not. Instead, order it with 512MB and upgrade it yourself to 2GB for $100

    you can get it for $189
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820146125

    DDR2 5300 should be correct for a macbook
    [edit]
    you need Notebook ram thats desktop ram.
    [edit2]
    if you allready got 1GB in a single stick then just get another single stick and it won't cost that $189
