I understand that there is a big difference right?

According to Tomshardware.com, all the SDR cards lack behind

I am using a Geforce 2 Mx 32mb SDR :( , if I can get a Geforce 2 Pro 64mb for like 50 bucks, would it be worth the upgrade?

Btw..It's a Winfast Geforce 2 Pro 64mb DDR, anything good or bad about this card?

Thanks

In general that's correct, but it certainly doesnt guarantee all graphics cards utilizing DDR SDRAM would be faster then any given SDR board.
DDR SDRAM is definitely higher performance then SDR DRAM, but it alone won't ensure a board performs well.

That said, jumping from a GF2 MX to a GF2 Pro should provide an extremely appreciable benefit. In bandwidth limited scenarios you may well see over double the performance in some instances.
