Is there much noticeable difference between 1GB and 2GB?

Frame buffer and bandwidth.

That's what I did. The cable you can see running up the length of the MB is the USB header. The front panel switches tucked inside the CPU cutout and just looped out at the bottom. Probably a bit hard to see... they're tiny.

Larger memory allows for the game to load more textures.

Please chime in Troopers if I'm off base.

Larger memory would only matter if you're going to be playing at resolutions exceeding 1920x1080 or having a multi-monitor setup. If you're not going with extreme resolutions, you should be fine with XFire 6950's for higher frame rates. They're much cheaper now especially since the massive price cuts to the 79xx series.
