    moving to hardware for better assistance.

    To be honest I don't think there is any noticable difference, consider its older memory.

    Basically, low density RAM has chips on only one side of the stick, while high density RAM has chips on both sides. Some motherboards were compatible with only low density RAM, so high density will not work in them. If you have the choice, I think it would be better to get low density, just in case yours is not compatible...but if you have the manual for your motherboard, it might say it there, or post the model of your motherboard, and someone can probably figure it out.
