Exclamation Ram question: ddr2 same as ddr?

i want to buy a gig stick of ram, my dell dimension 9100 uses ddr2. I want to buy OCZ memory in gold or something around 120, but all they have is ddr. Is that a misprint or am i missing something?

DDR2 has double the Data Bus Speed.

It also usually has highler latencies and is more expensive.

ddr is not just for amd its just amd's architecture does not support ddr2.. yet anyway.. dont think they are every gonna support it though cause the craze for it wasn't as high as they thought it was gonna be.. ddr can be used for amd or intel, it depends on what the board handels, most new intel mobo's take ddr2 ram not really much else.
