Depends on which chipsets you want to compare. The newest VIA DDR chipset is the KT266A and it gives up to a 25% boost in performance over the best SDR chipset. However, if you want to go with the original KT266 or the AMD761, you probably won't notice a huge performance difference. Either way, I would go with DDR since the price difference is negligable and the performance increase is there. (Unless you go with ALI Magik1, but we don't have to go there :wink: )

Agreed, except that the price is exactly the same from Crucial. From other sites, the difference is negligable, like the man said.

Why not? I have a friend who loves his A7A266, and plenty of people around here like that chipset.

I know that there are several people that like that chipset. I am just giving a little bit of personal opinion based on reviews I have read which show it fairly consistantly being the slowest performer and partially based on past experiences with various ALI chipsets.

Performance-wise, I agree. The Ali Magik 1 doesn't do too well.

But remember, you can't judge a book based on the movie they made about it.
Wait, bad analogy.
Umm...you can't judge a stream by the spring that made it?
No, wait a minute here.
Ok, you can't judge a man because of his older brothers, how's that?
