Oct 15, 2006, 9:51 PM
Ok i'm building a new rig and don't know which memory to get.
I can either get a larger mem but with slower timings or a smaller mem with faster timings.
Which one will be better ..
I am building a C2 E6400 with a Gygabyte 965P DS3, and will be getting a 7900GTO GC.
Corsair 800 timimngs 5-5-5-12
Corsair 667 timings 4-4-4-12
Both are roughly the same price so please can u help me. I wil be looking at OC to 3.0-3.2ghz.

Normally, larger is better, but it seems like you meant "faster speed rating," not "larger." Since they're both 2GB, they look pretty much the same to me.
