Get the fastest you can afford, I don't think she will get a better picture because you have a faster speed, but 512 should be OK.

The web cam picture will depend on your upload speed, i.e. the fastest you can upload the web cam images of you, towards your friend.

As almost all broadband, 512kbps - 2mbps, is 256kbps upload, there will be no difference in the web cam images, for whichever speed you get.

So unless you are doing lots of downloading from fast servers, then go for the 512kbps if it saves you money.
