Thanks for the replies.
I wouldn't be getting DDR2 on GPUs these days, but for it's use, it should be fine.

If you want the best though, I think DDR2 halves the bandwidth versus GDD3 at the same clock speed? I know most cards that had DDR2 and Gddr3 versions, the latter was noticeably faster.

It's a different game when you're comparing different chips though, so I wouldn't know there.
