High density contains fewer chips, low density would have more. Low density would overclock better, due to it running cooler.

Also (and I'm not sure why, so if anyone can fill me in on the details, I'd appreciate it) high-density RAM works best on newer systems that don't have specific DIMM size limitations. (You know, the kind that you could theoretically toss a 1GB DIMM into.) Low-density RAM however works in those ancient machines where they had significant memory limitations. Some of those old machines can't even take more than 128MB into each DIMM slot.

Again, I don't know why the density matters. I just know that I've seen it a lot of various memory reseller web pages. If anyone knows just exactly why density matters, I'd like to know. :)
