Hi guys, have a question:

Just got a new 2.0GHz Aluminum Macbook. I have 4GB (2x2GB) of DDR2 sticks lying around that I am thinking about sticking in the new mac. But I wasn't sure if that will improve performance over the 2GB DDR3 RAM already included.

Can anyone tell me whether speed or capacity matters more?

Probabl capacity

2gb is not that hard to use up these days. Still less than ideal.

Won't Fit

A DDR2 SODIMM will probably not fit in a DDR3 slot. And if it does, it will still not work.
