If I were you I would go with DDR2 because its twice as cheap and neither is going to give you any noticeable performance over the other and that's what its all about.

Yeh your better off getting DDR2 ram and getting a better processor, eg. Q9550 with the extra cash.

Yep, DDR3 is still too expensive. Get 4gb of Tracers or HPC, and a faster processor (the Q9550 as suggested).
Don't forget the aftermarket cooler. An Xigmatek Rifle S1283 or OCZ Vendetta should do the job fine!
