Im looking to upgrade the ram in my computer, and was wondering if I should go with the Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 2x8 16GB Ram with 9, 10, or 11 CAS... Basically do you want low CAS, or high CAS?

Also, which type of corsair RAM would be best for video editing, and gaming? Corsair Vengeance, Corsair Dominator, Etc...

Low cas is better.

In many cases, if the board and cpu support it higher speeds can help.

Outside of benchmarking, many users will not notice the difference.

Lower CAS is faster. CAS is short for CAS latency, that meaning how long the delay is between when the RAM is queried and how soon it responds (measured in clock cycles)
