The 2
DDR is 184 pin, DDR2 is 240 pin, differences in voltage and timings as well.
They don't go together, without getting two technical.

Thanks, but I was really wanting to know is the difference between the "pc" and "pc2"
designation on ddr2 memory. Nevertheless, I appreciate your willingness to take the time to help.

Do you have a site where you've seen both listed next to each other? Also, what is the next number when you see this diplayed? (e.g DDR2 PC6400. PC 2 6400?)

The pc"x" is just another way to indicate which type of DDR ram it is. all ddr2 ram is pc2.
there are two ways to classify ram, either: pc2 6400 or DDR2 800.

PC is just a number that is the result of the MHz multiplied by 8.

PC3200 = DDR 400MHz

PC2 6400 = DDR2 800MHz

Thank you for the help. I believe my confusion began when I sought help from the "expert" at my local Staples. I believe I understand now.
