Shopping around for ram - a component that I'm still learning about in general. My question currently is this: what is more important to consider, latency or speed? For the sake of example http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Same speed, but the Ripjaw has a quicker latency. Worth spending the extra money? Unless there's something(s) I'm missing. Thanks in advance for your help. Getting that much closer to funding my new build!
