DDR or SDR memory ?

Hi My motherboard takes either 184pin DDR PC2100/1600 (2 slots supports upto 2MB) or 168pin SDR PC133 memory sticks (3 slots supports upto 3MB) ....

My question is , which is best ? is there any difference in performance in either ?

Windows XP
512 DDR
gForce3 nvidia graphics
creative 5.1 soundblaster live
asus a7a266 motherboard

I use a download peer2peer program plus play some comp games and things slow down and have read on the net that more memory is a good this (the most the board can handle the better)

so , does anyone know which gives the better performance DDR or SDR

DDR is faster. It clocks data on both edges of the clock pulse which is why its called DDR (Double Data Rate).
