What to look for in RAM?

I am a little confused on what RAM to get. When comparing RAM, you compare the capacity and speed right? Is there anything else I should know about RAM?

More about what
  1. You need to look at the following things:
    1) Latency - Timings (lower is typically better)
    2) Speed - MHz
    3) Voltage - What is your voltage and does it meet your CPU's specs (Intel i3, i5, i7 less than 1.65V)
    4) Manufacturer - Is it a good manufacturer like Corsair, Mushkin, G.SKILL..
    5) Compatiablity - Is the RAM on the QVL list for your motherboard (not a must but is always nice!!)
