Hi, I'm looking to buy fast performing memory for the P55 chipset. I will be using an i5-750, and probably an Asus board. What it comes down to is: what is better for P55, lower latency or higer frequency? I was looking at these two models.

I will be gaming, and I'm leaning toward the G.skill RAM. What do you think?

I agree with the G.SKILL choice. It is more of a factor to have lower latency than higher speeds but the Tridents can match the Mushkin in speed and latency and is recommended by Tom's Hardware in their last review.

Well I meant if I ran the g.skill at the rated latency and 2000Mhz frequency versus the mushkin at the rated latency and 1600Mhz frequency, what would give me the most performance in games , lower latency (Mushkin) or higher frequency (G.Skill) ?

The lower latency would probably be a bit faster in games - but most likely not really by any large amount that would be noticeable.

^+1... Agree

You would see little difference outside of benchmarks, which why in the end, I would look to save money and pick up these G.SKILL instead. They will perform very nicely at a cheaper price. :)
