Is there any big difference between the two? Is it worth paying more for the redline frostbyte ove the blackline frostbyte? and is there any significant difference between the two when playing demanding games like Crysis and Metro 2033?
You won't see any performance increase with the Relines. What they have are lower latencies down from 7-8-7 to 6-8-6. This will what some impact on performance if your running very RAM dependent applications though you won't notice any loss.
You could even save more money by going for 9-9-9 and dropping to 1333MHz if your not OCing.
No difference. Lower latency means only, if not at all, little difference in performance. You virtually can't see the difference between 6-8-6 and 7-8-7. Maybe ~2-3%. In games and multi app. you can't even notice the difference. Maybe 1 fps? Maybe even no fps difference in games.
What mess up of the topic? Ha didn't even know that 1066MHz is fine, didn't exactly trust your evidence (no offense) so I seeked some benchmarks. Very true that 1066 is fine. Thanks for enlightening me . It would have been better if you just linked me straight to benchmarks, all I did was search "1066 vs 1333 ddr3" and got this nice benchmark: http://www.anandtech.com/show/2792
