i was just wondering, which ram would be better: Corsair (TWINX1024-3200XLPRO) 1024MB (2 x 512MB Matched Pair), DDR400 / PC3200, 2-2-2-5
or Corsair (TWINX1024-4000PRO), 1024MB (2x 512MB Matched Pair), DDR500 / PC4000, 3-4-4-8
well i really get lost on the latency stuff, tho i belive the top one has very low letencys, what advantage would this have over higher latencys? thanks for your help eagleone

The 2nd one is better as it is faster. Your motherboard will need to be able to handle it though - if it cant it will run the same speed as the first one.
what mother board do you have Eagle One?
well its not about what i have, coz i have a P4B with Pentium 4 1.7Ghz, its what im going to get, itll be getting an MSI N8N Neo2 Platinum Socket 939 Nforce3, with an AMD Athlon 3500+ Winchester
you can use any speed of DDR ram then.
alright, and so the Mhz means more than the latencys i take it?

Its means a WHOLE LOT more! Latency is how many CPU cycles before the RAM comunicates with it. with muliple Ghz systems, thats not much time at all.
Don't quote me on the CPU cycles part though. :D
Are you going to overclock?
DDR500 modules are good if you want to OC your system.
its also good RAM generally too, thats nice stuff.
