Using of swap file is not bad thing per se. Swapping happened even if 
your memory is not full. If some memory is not used for very long, it 
got swapped just to free some memory to be ready if some process need 
more space.
512MB is fine, but mine system (Debian) use 612MB. So 2*512 should be 
enough for everybody (tm). 2*1Gb is IMO overkill.
