Hi i need help i was wondering what is better for gaming a ram running at 1066mhz with a latency of 5-6-6-18 or a ram running 800mhz with a latency of 4-4-4-15? thanks.
More aboutwhats high latency
The 1066 will be faster but the difference is so minute it's impossible to notice without running benhcmarks.
Best is low latency at high mhz.
Actually, I'm not so sure, HIB. Most RAM that will run at 800 MHz with 4-4-4-12 timings will run at 1066 MHz at 5-5-5-15. It's virtually the same amount of time (4 cycles/800 MHz and 5 cycles/1066 MHz).
