I'm going to supplement some form of choline with the piracetam I'll be getting soon.
Is there a substantial difference between choline bitartrate and cdp-choline? (Enough
to warrant the price difference?)

Secondly I've seen choline bitartrate mixed with insitol is there any advantage to this?

It depends on how much money you have. I don't really view CDP-choline as a source of choline but rather another nootropic. It is on the more expensive side even for nootropics though. And if you're going to use one or the other alpha-GPC is superior to CDP choline IMO.

I would assume that there is an advantage to using choline + inositol but I don't really know much about inositol. You may want to take a tablespoon or two of lecithin daily as well, it contains more bioavailable and longer-lasting choline as well as inositol.

There are many choline donors to make Acetylcholine, they are rated on their ability to convert into Acetylcholine in the brain. From weakest to strongest (more or less):

PhosphatidylCholine
Choline (As bitartrate, Chloride, and Citrate)
DMAE
CDP-Choline
Alpha-GPC

I usually recommend CDP-Choline, due to the large amount of studies conducted on it.
