512 SDR. DDR2 is better, but more the memory better it is for your PC, irrespective of the memory technology. You have a point there but considering the current trends, i will prefer the DDR because sdram is being replaced with ddr. Especially if you planning to buy a new mother board, most MoBo's nowadays are of ddr. But speed and capability is better than having plenty of ram. It is with the speed of access not only the space. Besides, it's better to consider efficiency, right?
