Kaos Posted December 4, 2005 Posted December 4, 2005 I've been trying to decide on memory for my new system. Going with 2Gb in 2 sticks. From what I've found, DDR400/PC3200 is available in timings as low as 2-2-2-5, with 2-3-2-6 being fairly common. Stepping up to DDR500/PC4000, timings are only 3-4-4-8 or 3-4-3-8. Prices are somewhat comparable overall. So what'll end up with the best speed? The slower clock speed with better timings, or the faster clock speed with slower timings? I'm trying not to complicate the issue by throwing brands and prices into the equation, suffice to say that for most respected brands, speeds/timings are very similar, as listed above, and pricing is comparable. I just want to know the overall effect of the speed/timings. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
