You get to keep both pieces. =)

Release notes state:

Minimum RAM for text-mode: 256 MiB
Minimum RAM for graphical: 348 MiB
Recommended RAM for graphical: 512 MiB 

it's a very inexact science, though, it depends on exactly what install
media you're using and what kind of install you're trying to do. We try
to keep to those numbers as much as possible.
