I would not compare 256 to 512, as 256 mb ram really can't do anything nowadays with modern games and apps. But considering larger values, I would rather a gig of ddr2 ram than 1.5 gig of ddr. Games load faster with ddr2, especially in dual channel mode, as textures can be swapped to and fro a lot quicker, as can sounds and game files. Applications run a lot faster as the memory can ustilise its capacity faster than ddr, causing things to run a lot smoother and with less freeze times.
