Now that DDR2 is out, motherboard manufacturers have gotten geared up for it's appearance. Is now the time to go for the gusto and upgrade? Hopefully this article will help to shed some light on that question as we pit the new against the old.

Now, I'm not saying that the days of DDR are over, but we've pretty much seen the limits of what DDR is capable of. DDR2 is the next logical progression for memory standards and speeds. DDR2 incorporates several new designs and specifications which play a part in it's increased speed.
Full Review...

Conclusions:
When you get right down to it, for today's performance the differences between using DDR and DDR2 at 533MHz, there is little to no difference. Where DDR2 will shine, is in it's overclocking potential and the promise of future applications making use of it's enhanced speed and bandwidth. As when DDR was first introduced over SDRAM, it will be a while before these advantages are fully realized, but DDR2 will be sure to come into it's own sooner rather than later. Right now, there is no reason to upgrade your existing system based solely on DDR2. However, having said that, if you are already thinking it's time to upgrade, I would definitely recommend going with a DDR2 platform for future expandability not to mention it's overclocking potential.

I agree with that if one is considering to upgrade his h/w and will be glad to pay more to get better performance.

But, as for myself, money talks, I would prefer to wait

personally i dont care THAT much for those few % gained with DDR2...I mean...if we were talking about few $$$ in diferrence between DDR and DDR2 then OK...I would choose DDR2...but in this case...performance gain just doesnt justify much higher cost...
