is there a big difference between the 2?
Yes. I am not completely sure on this, but I think it increases speed.
RAM wise, not CPU-wise Please Register or Log in to view images (If that made any sense)
One thing I am positive about is that there is a price difference between the two Please Register or Log in to view images

Higher clock speeds and lower voltages
quick question wats better 2gb ddr3
or 4gb ddr2??
Isn't the clock speed on RAM how fast it can read and write to and from the RAM or how fast it interacts with the CPU?
It's how fast the RAM itself is working, which is why you can have CPU's with different FSB' using the same type of RAM.
Now, on topic, DDR3 is not really necessary (yet), DDR2 RAM will do just fine for just about all software that exists right now. DDR3 is better than DDR2 in the fact that the buffer is twice as large as that of DDR2 RAM, meaning twice as much data can be read/written in the same time. Also, DDR3 has higher clock rates than DDR2 (xxxx Mhz).
do u have any answer to the question i posed?
i know u know ur fair share lol
Moving the topic on a bit:
2.0 Ghz or 2.4 Ghz?
I want it for Logic 8, PS, Internet and iWork / Microsoft 08.
Right now, I would go for maximum memory and not maximum speed. The max FSB on a 'normal' processor is either 800Mhz or 1066Mhz, and having faster RAM doesn't make much sense until you get to processors with at least 1333Mhz FSB. And of course you need a motherboard that supports DDR3.
im talkin about in the new macbooks..i have 4 gb ddr2 laptop ram laying around..if i buy one..should i swap the 2gb for the 4 gb?
