I remember going through the same issues with my XsitePro sites. I think I started out with the caps and then read that no caps was better which bummed me out.
Long term success will not be focused on how your page urls are created. So don't "sweat the small stuff" as they say. The only thing I can think of as to why it is good to have no caps is for when people want to return to your site and think... hm... now what page was that?
The second version is easier and you don't have to tell people to "remember" to cap the first letter.
The key to building traffic is going to rest on your off-site efforts of backlinking. Good site structure is important, good on-site seo of course, but you can still rank high for keyword phrases that are not in the title. They say it is harder, but it happens all the time. Adobe ranks at number one for the keyword term "click here". The title of the page is Adobe - Adobe Reader and the domain name, clickhere.com with the title of the tag having Click Here in it as well as the domain name being, clickhere.com doesn't outrank Adobe due to the huge backlinks that go directly to Adobes download page.
I would personally keep it consistent. Regardless, I wouldn't worry about it. If you have no traffic and your site is not ranking or listed, hey, just make that quick change in the structure for consistency and start working on your backlinking.
Changes only hurt for a while. I changed my page title at some point and it took three weeks for Google to put my site back where it was. I was really upset there for a while, but it did come back. It's a pain and a worry to see your site dip or completely disappear for keyword phrases you worked hard to rank for, but if you need to make adjustments, just remember that it is ok to do so, you may lose some traffic for a while, but it will come back.
