Default Ddr2 Ram

Is it really a whole lot faster than regular DDR ram? Because I'm putting together a new computer and I don't know if I should get a AMD2 socket for DDR2 or just a regular old DDR mobo.

well DDR2 is fast, but with the crapy timmings it wont really make a difference. DDR2 goes to 3.0 CAS (last time a saw ram @ DDR2) but I can be wrong.. If your getting AM2 system just get any DDR2 with really low timmings. Example DDR2 @ 533MHZ @ 3-4-4-8 compard to DDR @ 800mhz @ 4-6-6-10 for example.. if your getting socket 939 system, than get new type of memory like OCZ's
