More about what bandwith latency
  1. More bandwidth, less latency.

  2. Some definitions for you:

    Bandwidth - Whether it refers to FSB, memory or internet transmission, bandwidth is the rate at which data travels through a medium. MHz or Bps, more is better.

    Latency -
    Quote:
    Latency (also called CAS Latency)
    The amount of time in nanoseconds (often measured in clock cycles) between a request to read the memory, and when it is actually output. SDRAMs are typically referred to as CL2 or CL3, with CL2 parts being faster.

    So less is better.

  3. But if you're wondering whether it'd be more beneficial to go to 150MHz from 133, or to from CAS3 to CAS2, then it'd be better to go to CAS2.
