I would like find dual channel 1600mhz 12800 that is reliable, stable and great performance for gaming. only need 4gigs since I am using Windows XP.


I'd like some info on cas timings due to most of the brands I have looked at they range from 6 to 9.

Your best bet is to review the Memory QVL list at this site: http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=kPGmtxee5RsQVsXG (Memory|Device Support tab). It will list all of the memory that has been certified for your motherboard.

As for the CAS Latency (timings) 6 is better than 9, so basically the ranking goes from best to okay... 6 to 7 to 8 to 9

With modern processors, RAM timings make very little difference. The increased price for the "better" lower-latency RAM isn't worth the minimal performance benefit.
