i was using 2gb 667 corsair value ram running it at 1:1 ratio with my fsb at 370(3.33ghz) on an e6600.

bought 2gb geil 800mhz low latency stuff (cus it was cheap :D ) and am running it at 1:1 ratio(which means it currently under 800mhz) also with the lower latencies than the corsair (4-4-4-12 compared to 5-5-5-15)

now to my question......

i do gaming and lots of 3d and photoshop and am wondering if it wud be better to have 4gb ram running at 5-5-5-15 or just keep the 2gb at 4-4-4-12. which one would give the most noticeable and real world usefulness gain?

im using xp pro 32bit so i no it will only b about 3.25gb(or sumin like that)

The change in timings probably wouldn't be noticeable except in benchmarks, double the ram you would most certainly notice

My vote goes for 4GB
