size vs resolution effect on performance

suppose we have to images
image 1 has resolution 1000x1000 and is only 10KB
image 2 has resolution 300x300 but is 100KB

which one when used as a particle will result in a higher drop in framerates?

    Image 1 will occupy a 1024 x 1024 pixel chunk of memory.
    Image 2 will occupy a 512 x 512 pixel chunk of memory.

    You will only start to see a drop in frame rates if the processor is overloaded, this could happen with either image 1 or image 2, or maybe neither.
