  1. The FAQs at crucial.com and mushkin.com should enrich your understanding.

  2. I'm glad this question was raised, I had it in my head while looking over crucial's ram prices and saw the two variations listed. The answers are in ther faq.

    Here's a link to the difference between the two:

    And here's a link to which is faster (unbuffered):

    Also be careful, because they are apparently not interchangeable. I think unbuffered is the standard so that's what I'm getting.
