there is a big difference in performance one is 533MHz and the other is 800MHz

if you cant afford 800 then go for DDR2 667 it is a little cheaper and performs really well if your not overclocking

of course its faster. If you got the money pick up the 800. Get at least a gig also to support the rest of the stuff you got. If you dont have the money do whats mentioned above and get some 667. At least a gig minimum tho for whatever you choose.
