There is about a 70 dollar difference. Is the difference really worth it? Is the difference only going to be evident if I'm playing Doom 3 or HL2?

You'll notice it even without all the eyecandy.
The memory interface makes a huge difference.

That is unless you only plan to play DX7 or earlier games.
Then you wouldn't see much of a difference.
