Hi,
Jonathan has a good article at
http://www.jlcomp.demon.co.uk/untested.html that may give some good insight into how memory plays with different PGA settings. I believe this would show up on the execution plan cost.

Also do consider WORKAREA_SIZE_POLICY in conjunction with PGA_AGGREGATE_TARGET to switch on the auto memory management. Sorry I do not have any test cases at this moment to show significant effects on execution plans.

Thanks!
amar
