1. What are the main differences between SDRAM and DDR SDRAM?

2. Physically, how to identify which is which?

Thanks

that web site tell the story of DDR quite well (its twice as fast)

as for the visual diffrence, look at the photos on that web site and you will note the diffrent number of pins, the diffrent notches in the conector, and the diffrent notches in the ends.

thay dont fit in to the wrong socket unless you push then way too hard (dont do this)

if you dont know which to get for your system then have a read of the motherboard book and it will tell you.
