ive never heard of ballistix but i would say that 1 gig of good name brand pc3200 memory would be better than the half gig of ballistix.

DDR2 isn't that great as of now, but it should get better.
I'd say if you really want DDR2, just get 512MB Kingston PC3200 for now, and wait a few months for DDR2 to mature

otherwise Corsair has got excellent PC3200 RAM, with really low latencies

Default Ballistix 512MB DDR2

Read this article to find out if you should buy DDR2. http://www.tomshardware.com/firstlook/20040716/

Ballistix is just the name of Curcials Proformance memory. Curucial/Ballistix is a name brand, in fact they are the lagest producers of Dram in the united states. Top 3 manufacturers in the world are: Samsung, hynix, and Micron technology. (micron owns crucial)

Micron is the first memory semiconductor manufacturer to gain Intel validation across all densities, speeds, and configurations of DDR2 SDRAM components and modules.

http://www.micron.com/products/dram/...alidation.html

Note:
Kingston does not produce memory it buys RAM/die (those black squares on the ram module) from actual Dram manufacurers and puts it on a module, then sells the module with kingston label. so you dont know if your getting some ram they bought from a small company no one has heard of or if its good quality ram from a company like micron or samsung. i would not reccomend kingston if your looking for "high" performance ram.
