    DDR2 is the older form of memory, You can now get DDR3 which is better in pretty much every way. It is faster, cheaper and cooler running. DDR2 for a server has to be a proper server type RAM which I believe is called Buffered RAM. Unless you know what you are putting this RAM into I can't really advise on what to buy.

    Regular DDR2 is not 'excellent' for any of those tasks, for one it's outdated and so will be unusable in new PC's.
    It's also becoming more expensive then DDR3 due to lack of production, in the same way regular DDR is even more expensive due to the low need for it (or was anyway, not actually checked current prices on that one).
    Server RAM also uses ECC (error correction code) which standard consumer memory does not have.
    It still has uses, but not sure if you'd want to deal it in bulk.

    Adam 3088 Has the right Idea. Although DDR2 still has some life in it, if you are going to be selling it as a reseller, you will want to carry both as many people look to upgrade components versus the whole system. A $50 component is better on the pocketbook than a $400 value computer you will have to upgrade later. With that said, when looking to build, DDR3 is the way to go as mentioned it is cheaper right now, and you can put a lot more in newer systems. It also runs at faster speeds.
