    Yeah the first one just looks stupid... I'd go with the TwinX anyway, now those people know what they're talking about. Don't buy from the stupid Chinese... no offense to any Chinese out here, but, you know... damn.

    ohh i see! i dont know about the models of ram, i just saw that in one of the online shops.

    Oh by the way since we're talking about memory which is the best to get is it with 533Mhz CL 3.4.4.8 something like that or those with CL 2-2-3-5 1T??

    Im gonna be using it on an

    ABIT IC7 Max 3 Mobo with
    2.4C Intel P4 and

    Get the CL 2-2-3-5 1T (I take it that this is either PC3200 or PC3500?) and then when ya crank up the CPU's FSB drop the CPU/memory ratio to 5:4 because even when runnin' the 533Mhz CL 3.4.4.8 at 1:1 at higher frequencies though higher latencies are goin' to impact on performance.

    oh i see.. thanks wiggo. I dont know about latencies. i thought that the higher the latencies e.g. 3-4-4-8 the better?

    No they're the number of wait cycles b4 things are done and the latency of those faster modules is about 35-40% higher than the slower modules.

    ahhhh!! Im so dumb! hahaha! so 3-4-4-8 is longer than 2-3-3-5, so it that case (correct me if I'm wrong) the low modules will perform better am i right?
