  1. As the topic title suggests, my question:

    Is DDR II SDRAM worth the price increase over DDR SDRAM?

    The price difference isn't that drastic, but is the peformance increase that large, and is there any other issues with DDR II SDRAM which i should know about having never built a machine with DDR II in it. I've built countless machines with DDR but have no experience in the newer technology.

    Many thanks

    DDR and DDR2 are NOT compatible, they have different physical shapes as well.

    DDR2 is overpriced and does not give THAT much of an increase.
    Stick with some good DDR.
